Critical Response:

  • “This year the bring-down-the-house funny short was Josh Polon’s 6-minute Best Sound […] In its emphasis on exposing the strings of cinematic artifice, Best Sound is in some ways the perfect distilled True/False film.” – Nick Pinkerton, Sight & Sound
  • “One of the best-received films of the night wasn’t even competing for a prize. Director Josh Polon’s Best Sound […] drew the biggest audience reaction, partially out of disgust […] and partially from the hilarity of on-screen drunkenness.” – Nicole Meyer, VOX Magazine
  • “This testament to the transformative power of cinema depicts a mute sound designer as he gathers hard-earned materials for his transcendent art.” – True/False Film Festival
