If anyone attending True/False ever stopped to consider where the Fest’s tickets were printed (and, let’s be honest, this elite group of daydreaming nerds and visionaries is surely very, very small), they probably imagine some sort of corporate-industrial fortress, belching smoke into the sky above Earth City, MO, a sad robot toiling away day and night in a sub-sub-basement, churning out the more than thirty thousand tickets that are distributed at the T/F Box Office each year.
Those visionary nerds would be wrong!
Every ticket is actually printed on a mini-thermal ticket printer sitting atop the ping-pong table in the basement of T/F materials coordinator and signage czar Glenn Rice’s basement. Rice has produced an impossibly entertaining, one-minute-long, lovingly annotated film that explains the process in loving detail.
Gateway Packets allow attendees to reserve three tickets online (they can be used for one, two, or three films), selected from a list specially chosen by the T/F programmers. Visit Visit the online T/F Box Office to purchase! Gateway sales end at 6:00 pm on Friday, 2/24.
Back for its second year, the Boone Dawdle brings together some of the best things in life — biking, music, food, nature, and film. It’s also a fun, outdoorsy way for you to show your support of True/False in the off-season. Can we call it a tradition yet? (read more »)
There’s still time to get your pass for True/False 2011. Super Circle, Silver Circle, Lux and Simple passes are now on sale (and only available here). There are only 8 of our Super Circle passes remaining, and these come with a special one-on-one consultation with veteran film programmer Chris Boeckmann.
The Crossing, our long-time sponsor of the True Life Fund, will host a free screening of We Are Together on Friday Feb. 4 at 7:00 pm. We Are Together was the first ever True Life Fund film, screened back in 2007, and tells the inspiring story of a children’s choir at the Agage orphanage in South Africa.
Here are the showtimes with remaining tickets. Come on down!
SUNDAY, FEB. 28
14C. GasLand (10:00AM, Missouri)
36B. Those Who Remain (3:00PM, Missouri)
If a film you wanted to see is not on this list, remember there is still a good chance you can get in at the door by using the Q system. Inevitably, some of the people who reserved tickets don’t show up, and we make those seats available for patrons at the door with our ingenious “Q” system.

Remember, NRT stands for “No Reserve Tickets” and it means that all the tickets for a film have been purchased or reserved by passholders. When this happens, there are no longer tickets available from the Box Office for a screening. We don’t say “SOLD OUT!” because there is still a good chance you can get in at the door by using the Q system. Inevitably, some of the people who reserved tickets don’t show up, and we make those seats available for patrons at the door with our ingenious “Q” system.
