Gimme Truth

Gimme Truth! is our very own documentary game show, hosted by Brian Babylon and featuring an array of doc-world celebrity judges! Local filmmakers attempt to stump the judges/contestants with their short doc style videos that are entirely TRUE or entirely FALSE. Stay tuned, we’ll be announcing the celebrity panel soon! All films need to be 2 minutes and made by people who live Missouri. And of course, prizes will be awarded to the top three films!
