Thumbs Up for T/F 2012

Posted March 6, 2012

Roger Ebert on T/F 2012 (on Facebook):

This event at the U of Missouri is a good example of a film festival that has defined a role for itself, and built up a loyal audience over 10 years. Why spend a fortune to go to Cannes when there may be a terrific event like this nearby? Kevin Lee is a well-known blogger and was our correspondent at True/False.

Read Lee’s thoughtful T/F round-up on the Chicago Sun-Times‘s blog.

More thumbs aloft: Sean Farnel, acquisitions consultant for Snagfilms and the former director of Canadian film fest Hot Docs (and, according to Paul Sturtz, “the hardest working man in the documentary festival world”), apparently had a great time at T/F 2012. Which is saying something, seeing as he’s attended dozens of festivals around the world, from Pusan to Tehran to Karlovy Vary.

Read Farnel’s rave review of T/F ’12 on his blog, Ripping Reality.
