Over the past few years another festival, the False/False Film Fest, has grown in our shadow and continually challenged our ability to take ourselves seriously. Curated by Scott Southwick, False/False has established itself as “the Midwest’s premiere machine-generated yet nonexistent documentary film festival” operating on the principal of “documentary plus fiction minus documentary”. Below you’ll find a few selections from False/False’s programming. You can also create your own entries using their random blurb generator.
