Presented by True/False Film Fest, America's favorite (and only) documentary game show challenges the audience and a panel of esteemed celebrity judges to determine truthiness. Filmmakers attempt to judges by presenting their totally true or totally false two-minute docs that feature an oddball character local to the Los Angeles area. At its loftiest, Gimme Truth! is as much game show as a contemplation on the veracity of images (especially nonfiction ones), but really, it’s just a raucous good time.

Host: comedian Brian Babylon (NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!)

Contestants

  • Sandi Tan: In 2018 this indomitable filmmaker finally premiered her many-decades-in-the-making Shirkers about the enigma of a lost film. On 10/26 Shirkers opens in theaters like the Laemmle Music Hall and Netflix worldwide. She is also the author of “The Black Isle,” a psychosexual odyssey concerning modern-day ghosts. Can her never-die spirit catapult her into the winner’s circle or will she be robbed again
  • Marshall Curry: This celebrated filmmaker is known for Street Fight, his early portrait of Cory Booker, Racing Dreams about young race car drivers and If A Tree Falls about radical environmentalists. Critic S.T. Van Airsdale says “his films get down to the business of communicating without distraction, discrimination or guile.” Will his innate decency impede him from recognizing the deviousness of Gimme Truth’s contestants?
  • Becky Garcia: Born in San Antonio, Becky began as an improv performer for The Oxymorons. She later moved to Chicago after being accepted to the Second City Conservatory program. After honing her stand-up, she arrived in LA, where she performs as well as appears in sketches for Channel 101, HaHaJK.com, and Tosh.O. Will this comedian find a perch amidst the serious doc mafia?

Supported by City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs, Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and A&E Indie Films.
