The True/False Film Festival will run from today until Sunday, and will showcase more than 40 films, dozens of works of art and many musical guests. Volunteers spent most of Thursday preparing for the rush of film-goers from all over the country. Kelsey Oerly says she is excited to finally contribute to the festival.
Organizers released the full list of films Wednesday and will announce the full schedule of events on Friday. A documentary about Pennsylvania State University will headline this year’s True/False Film Fest.
The 6th annual Citizen Jane film festival kicked off Friday at Stephen’s College. The festival will celebrate women filmmakers and—this year—adds a participatory summit to kick start a conversation about getting more in filmmaking.
This year, the festival held the first ever “Citizen Jane Summit” on Thursday.
Programming Director, Kerri Yost, told Thursday’s crowd she was proud of this cadence of friendliness.
“I really feel that everybody here creates what it is for us,” Yost said. “And it sounds really silly, but we’re trying to make a large change right now in the film industry and we truly believe that could come from the people.”
The summit is just one of the many events at the Citizen Jane festival that is not film.
