Just got back from the homespun True/False Film Fest in Columbia, Missouri. Here's my dispatch TRUE/FALSE FILM FESTIVAL 2011 in Filmmaker Magazine.
The hot topic was mutations of the nonfiction form. Here are some good articles that speak to the subject:
"It’s Actual Life. No, It’s Drama. No, It’s Both." by Dennis Lim
"Agrarian Utopias/Dystopias: The New Nonfiction" by Robert Koehler
"How Does Real Feel?" by A.O. Scott
