True Stories made a lot of stories recently and back with another one. First the producer/director announced that the documentary will return to Netflix and couple of days later he also revealed that it’s eligible for Oscar consideration in 2019.
As it turns out, for a movie to be considered for an Oscar, it must “have played in an L.A. County theater, for paid admission, for seven consecutive days, beginning in the appropriate calendar year.” – Levan Tsikurishvili
So after that being said, True Stories will launch a limited theatrical run in order to qualify for Academy Awards consideration. The film will be shown in New York City from Dec. 21 to 27 and in Los Angeles from Dec. 14 to 20.
True Stories was released with a huge massage to the artists out there and Tsikurishvili described the central message as “That life can look exciting and glamorous on Instagram and social media, but you don’t really have any idea what’s going on behind that.”
