The International Freethought Film Festival is an annual celebration of freedom of expression, promoting reason, critical thinking and freedom of inquiry.

We boldly exercise this liberty by exploring the many facets of freethought ideals through the art of independent film. IFFF showcases films from around the globe that have the potential to start a dialogue on the importance of using reason and science (void of superstitions) to explain our natural world and improve upon the human condition.
