The second annual Portland Humanist Film Festival (PHFF), advancing a culture of free thought, takes place November 11 through 13, 2011 at Cinema 21 (616 NW 21st).
Sponsored by the Center For Inquiry, the PHFF was established to be a provocative and enlightening cultural experience indicative of the rapidly growing Humanist movement in the Pacific Northwest.
Its mission is to provide, through the medium of film, an expansive window into many of the aspects of existence, morality, history, science and philosophy that reflect the Humanist perspective. By presenting a fusion of film genres that affirm the Humanist philosophy, the Portland Humanist Film Festival offers a meaningful dialogue for those who are curious about Humanism and its societal impact.
Films featured this year include The Nature of Existence (stay for a talk with director Roger Nygard after the film), The Invention of Lying, 8: The Mormon Proposition, The Ledge, and one of my favorites: Life of Brian – with costume contest!
The full schedule and ticket information is available on the PHFF website.
