The week of Feb 24 – March 2 marked the 6th year of Kaldi’s involvement and sponsorship of the True/False Film Festival in Columbia, MO. True/False is the second largest documentary film festival in the country, bringing thousands of national and international visitors to the Columbia area for the experience of non-fiction and documentary films, discussions with film makers and an overall great weekend. This event has grown year after year, and 2014 was no different, with over 40,000 tickets sold, the downtown Columbia streets were busy! As with years past, Kaldi’s involvement included espresso and coffee cocktail bars at “black tie” events, crafting coffee beers to order with our friends at Schlafly, numerous gallons of brewed coffee for filmmaker lounges, morning breakfast roundtables, and fueling the countless volunteers and True/False staff members. The festival also brought an enormous influx of customers to our café in downtown Columbia. The team there was representing the best of Kaldi’s, with non-stop orders from the coffee/espresso bar, kitchen and bakery.
One of our team members, Keith, briefly got away to see a couple of films, of which he said “Jodorowsky’s Dune” directed by Frank Pavich, was his favorite. Check out the trailer here.
As an event we at Kaldi’s anxiously anticipate each year, we’re excited and honored to be a long-standing partner and sponsor of this fantastic festival and look forward to years to come.
