The True/False Film Festival has hired Pamela Cohn (pictured) as festival programmer.

The role will see Cohn leading the refreshment of panels at the Columbia, Missouri-based event, re-imagining the fest’s experimental outdoor movie screen, and acting as liaison for the Based on a True Story journalism conference. She will also work alongside co-founders David Wilson and Paul Sturtz and programmer Chris Boeckmann to curate the festival’s lineup.

Cohn previously served as associate programmer for the Prizren, Kosovo documentary and shorts festival, DokuFest, and currently heads Kino Satellite, Berlin’s experimental video series. She has also contributed regularly as a film writer to various magazines and publications, including Filmmaker Magazine, DOX Magazine, Guernica and The Calvert Journal.

The True/False Film Festival will run from March 3 to 6 in Columbia, Missouri.

“Pamela is energetic, capable, and ridiculously well-versed in new currents in nonfiction cinema – especially work coming out of Central and Eastern Europe. She’s a huge asset to our team and will help bring a raft of creative ideas to True/False,” said Wilson in a statement.
