Event Description

Filipino Freethinkers Film Festival 2010 Challenges Religion, Celebrates Reason.

The Filipino Freethinkers Film Festival is the first film fest in the Philippines intended to challenge your thinking about belief, faith, and reason.

The films include a bittersweet one-woman show by a former “Saturday Night Live” cast member, a documentary exploring the link between religion and terrorism, and a couple of short films originally screened at the American Atheist Film Festival.

“Most of us don’t question our faith or religion at all,” says Ryan Tani, president of the Filipino Freethinkers. “But when religion increasingly conflicts with reason in society, we need a public discussion of the merits of faith. Especially we Filipinos, who live under laws shaped by the Catholic Church whether we’re Catholic or not.

It would've been great if I were in the Philipines, but alas, I'm not. How did the festival go anyway? Winnipeg is having our own in August & I'm curious about what to expect. Any protester? Any trouble-makers? Any wonderful surprises?
