Ringleaders

Each year, a (mostly) new crop of Ringleaders assume the coveted role of magnanimous festival emcees. Seen on stage before and after all screenings, they facilitate snappy introductions and attentive Q&As with the special guests here to present their films to True/False audiences. The responsibility of being a Ringleader is offered to industry professionals and festival friends from across the world, who have demonstrated the chops necessary to be an agent of True/False, to lure them to the middle of Missouri. It is always a privilege and a delight to have each of them here working with us for this brief but bustling weekend.
