“Truth isn’t just stranger than fiction; it’s more entertaining! The world’s first-ever Atheist Film Festival was held in San Francisco on June 28, 2009. Since then we have helped other atheist groups put on film festivals around the globe in places like Manila (The Philippines), Winnipeg (Canada), and Los Angeles, California.
This year the Atheist Film Festival returns with another exciting lineup of fascinating cinema ranging from the shocking to the hilarious. Come join your fellow heretics for a day of amazing documentaries, mind-blowing fiction, rarely screened controversial classics and beloved favorites.” – www.Atheistfilmfestival.org
