Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s Blackfish (pictured), Lucy Walker’s The Crash Reel and Sebastian Junger’s doc on the late Tim Hetherington are among the titles to make the cut for the 2013 True/False Film Fest.

The festival, which takes place from February 28 to March 3 in Columbia, Missouri, is this year celebrating its 10th edition.

Other recent hits from the film festival circuit slated to play at the event include Droh Moreh’s Oscar-nominated doc The Gatekeepers, Sarah Polley’s award-winning hybrid film Stories We Tell, and Morgan Neville’s Sundance opener Twenty Feet from Stardom.

True/False is this year awarding its 2013 True Vision Award to Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Verena Paravel, the co-directors of Leviathan and instructors at Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab.

In addition, the festival will this year recognize Junger’s documentary Which Way Is the Front Line from Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington with its True Life Fund.

Money raised by the True Life Fund will go to Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues (RISC) and the Milton Margai School for the Blind in Sierra Leone, the former being a charity established by Junger, and the latter being a charity favored by the late Hetherington.
