CoMo Famous

Support your favorite local celebrity(ies) and the good work of Ragtag Film Society!

Presented in partnership with the Missouri Film Office, CoMo Famous is our annual series celebrating cinema and community while raising money for Ragtag Film Society, the nonprofit that runs Ragtag Cinema and True/False Film Fest. This year during CoMo Famous, five prominent Columbians each selected a film to show — one night only at a special outdoor location! Contestants will compete for the highest amount of money raised for their event from ticket sales and donations between now and Oct. 27.

"Your 15 Minutes" Admission ($20 per ticket, $15 for members): A single outdoor CoMo Famous screening event.

"True Legend" Admission ($100 per ticket): One outdoor screening event plus an invite to the CoMo Famous Finale party on Friday, Oct. 23. This exclusive event will include an outdoor screening, as well as a socially distanced picnic and other fun surprises!

Attendees should arrive 15 minutes early to the contestants' outdoor screenings to get settled for any pre-film festivities! If inclement weather crops up, there will be rain dates for each screening, and information will be sent to all ticket holders as well as posted online.

At the finale party, guests will enjoy dinner from Big Daddy’s BBQ (choice of pulled chicken or pork, or veggie burger) and keep warm with drinks from Logboat, Les Bourgeois, and/or hot apple cider. We’ll have a roaring bonfire, merch, and photo-ops! We’ll also have a very special Branson-inspired musical performance, a chance to win prizes through trivia, games, and drawings, plus one final auction for a 3-day Branson getaway(!!!) before settling in for the 2013 Missouri film, AWFUL NICE.

An email with the full details about the CoMo Famous Finale party will be shared with ticket holders privately.
