The Freethought Film Festival Foundation is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, educational organization, founded in March of 2009. Our mission is to promote reason, critical thinking and freedom of inquiry through the medium of film. Our biggest project to carry out our mission is the production of the International Freethought Film Festival; an annual event that features independent films submitted to us by filmmakers themselves. The film festival is a celebration of freedom of expression. We boldly exercise that liberty by exploring freethought concepts through film, and educating the public on the importance of using reason and science (void of superstitions) to explain our natural world and improve upon the human condition.
The International Freethought Film Festival has proven to be a breakthrough for a freethought niche in film. We feel strongly that rationalistic and artistic are not mutually exclusive. Subscribe to our email updates to stay informed of the upcoming IFFF 2014 and individual screenings throughout the year.
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY FREETHOUGHT?
SIMPLY PUT, FREETHOUGHT IS THE CRITICAL EXAMINATION OF TRUTH-CLAIMS BASED ON REASON AND LOGIC... ...NOT SUPERSTITION, NOT TRADITION, NOT RELIGIOUS DOGMA, AND NOT BECAUSE SOMEONE "IMPORTANT" SAID SO.
Examples of Freethought Subjects
There are many costs associated with planning and executing a film festival. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and your contribution is tax deductible. Please take this opportunity to be a part of the pioneering promotion of reason through independent film. A donation of any amount is appreciated.
