Mentorship Program

The initial iteration of the True/False mentorship program was launched in 2007 as a way to help new nonfiction filmmakers navigate the sometimes treacherous terrain of the doc film world. Through meetings with seasoned industry professionals, first-time filmmakers get friendly advice on everything that happens after they finish their final cut. From sales agents to online distribution to European press, this is a chance for filmmakers to get unbiased answers on some of the thorniest topics in the movie business. This program ran through the 2022 Fest, after which, it evolved into the Confluence Fellowship!
