We are still accepting entries for IFFF 2017 via @FilmFreeway.

Late Deadline for IFFF 2017 is January 1st. Film entries this season (so far) hail from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, India, Iran, Spain, Cameroon, Canada, Colombia, Germany, Ireland, Palestine & Switzerland.


It is always so exciting for me, as the curator of IFFF, when I start to see the program coming together each season. The quality and content of films that we have received is thoroughly impressive. We only have a couple more deadlines until we receive our final film entries for consideration. It is mind-blowing to me that we are in our 7th season!


The International Freethought Film Festival is a niche for independent films that challenge what some societies and cultures deem beyond questioning. It affirms that rationalistic and artistic are not mutually exclusive. The critical examination religion and government policies, truth claims regarding the paranormal, alternative medicine, UFO’s, psychics, astrology, superstitions, mythology, folklore and pseudoscience, fits this niche. Films that shed light on Human Rights violations, and stories of women and men who take a humanistic approach to affect positive change in society, have a home at IFFF.


The weekend-long event is scheduled for May 5th-7th, 2017 in Downtown Orlando, Florida. (There is way more to do in O-town than the theme parks. Orlando has a vibrant arts scene, of which the International Freethought Film Festival is proud to be a part.)

Back in 2010 we received a film entry to the first annual International Freethought Film Festival titled, (R)evolution. It is a dramatic film submitted to us from India.


Synopsis: A book is connected to the lives of three people from three different decades: 1970’s, 1980’s, and 1990’s. Mumbai, 1997. Feroz has lost his girlfriend to an accident. He tries to find meaning in life through books. One day he comes across a book by J. Krishnamurti, in which a date, a name, and an address are written on the back of the cover. The film follows the journey of the book and its role in the lives of several people, tracing the way in which humans often wonder if it is possible to be bound together in time and space.


Today, as I was working on an archive page of all of the past films that we have screened at IFFF over the past six seasons, I discovered that the filmmaker has made his marvelous work available to the public on YouTube. Director Mustafa Zaferi was such a pleasure to work with. (Even though it was all via the World Wide Web). I had my first opportunity to edit together a teaser trailer, since–at the time–one had not been made for the film. I remember feeling very relieved (ok, and a little bit proud of myself) when Mustafa responded with his feedback on the trailer that it was exactly the way he wanted to promote the film. All of the main ideas that were key to him and the story he wanted to tell were reflected. I combed through the entire film to come up with this (It’s not much, but it was my very first time with editing anything ever.):  https://youtu.be/ri06fsUjnpA


This film remains one of our favorites of the International Freethought Film Festival of the past six season. We continue to wish Mustafa Zaferi the best! We are so glad that his film is now available to the world.
