The True False Film Fest has announced the second annual Boone Dawdle for Saturday, August 20th. The Dawdle involves a bike ride from Columbia to Rocheport with some music, food, and a documentary thrown in along the way.
The film for this year’s event is Last Days Here, a documentary about Bobby Liebling, singer and songwriter for the band Pentagram. Bobby’s manager Sean “Pellet” Pelletier will be in attendance for an afterwards Q&A. Check out a promo clip from the film.
Last Days Here is directed by Don Argott and Demian Fenton who have also directed Rock School and The Art of the Steal, both of which are available in the DBRL collection. We also still have the movie from last year’s Boone Dawdle, Best Worst Movie, available for checkout.

For a unique look behind the True False Film Festival check out KBIA’s video of a Truth on Film Panel. Originally broadcast during the weekly KBIA Intersection radio program in Feburary 2011, the show features three organizers of the True False Film Fest and two local film professors. The hour long show is broken up into two parts: One discussing current documentary film-making, and the second half focusing on the True False Film Fest selection process.
During the show they mention several documentaries that are available at DBRL including Exit Through the Gift Shop, Hoop Dreams, Catfish, Gasland, and Nanook of the North. You can also check out past True False Film Fest movies at DBRL as well.
