The True/False buskers are such an important part of the festival experience that some have called T/F a music fest disguised as a film fest. Buskers play sets before film showings, dazzle music lovers at evening showcases, entertain on balconies at parties, march in the parade, and perform on the street. They also get to watch films, dine at local restaurants, dance all night long, meet documentary filmmakers, and become part of the T/F community. We are looking for bands that are flexible enough to set up and break down within minutes, and that are willing and able to engage a crowd of chatty film goers. We pass the hat during pre-film performances and compensate out-of-town buskers with lodging, food and stipend, in addition to all the festival perks.

The 2020 call for submissions is now closed. Deadline: November 30, 2019

We hope to see you at the Fest!
