Create a Film for Gimme Truth!

Gimme Truth!, the T/F game show, returns Saturday, March 1 at The Vimeo Theater at The Blue Note in downtown Columbia. It’s the festival’s most unique event. It’s also the best opportunity for Missourians to get their name out there and have high-profile filmmakers see their work. In recent years our judges included Derek Waters of Comedy Central’s Drunk History and Oscar winner Malik Bendjelloul.

Gimme Truth! is made up of 10 two-minute films that are either 100% true or 100% false. The goal for each contestant is to make an intriguing, short  movie that fools three “celebrity” judges, each of whom are filmmakers appearing at the festival.

The top three films will win prizes!

1st place: Lux Pass to the 2015 fest, a weekend RED rental package and four-hour color grading session from Chimaeric and additional prizes that have yet to be announced!

2nd place: Lux Pass to the 2015 fest

3rd place: Simple Pass to the 2015 fest

Submissions are free before the early-bird deadline of January 24, 2014. After that there will be a $20 submission fee. Final deadline is February 17, 2013. All filmmakers who submit a film get a complimentary ticket to the event, while the 10 finalists get four tickets.
