T/F Boot Camp
Each year, a select group of high school students dive deeply into the True/False Film Fest and experience a weekend of exciting films, music, art, conversations, and workshops with a diverse crew of exceptional guests and local hosts. Based on their interests, Boot Campers choose their path through the festival - from music to art to journalism; they document their experience through writing, audio/video, interviews, or photography and share it with the community. Starting a couple months before the festival, the Boot Camp convenes to prepare for the fest, discuss relevant issues, share research, and plot their course. The Boot Camp brings together students with varying interests a way to access the fest. Applications are distributed in all the public high schools each fall. For more information, please email email@example.com
