The Portland Humanist Film Fest is the largest freethought film festival on the West Coast. It focuses the camera lens on the harm caused by religious superstition and unproven medical treatments, and it advocates for evidence-based thinking.

The festival features 17 independent films and 4 Box Office movies including:

Kumaré – The true story a false prophet. Film Maker Vikram Gandhi impersonates spiritual leader Kumaré and gathers disciples in the United States. In the process, he forges profound connections with people from all walks of life and is forced to confront difficult questions about his own identity. At the height of his popularity, Kumaré unveils his true identity to a core group of disciples who are knee-deep in personal transformation. Kumaré, at once playful and profound, is an insightful look at faith and belief. Film Maker Vikram Gandhi was recently interviewed on the Colbert Report.

Let’s Talk About Sex takes a closer look at American attitudes about sex. It was partially filmed in Portland and other Oregon locations. The film compares approaches to sex education in the US and Netherlands, and highlights solutions that lead to better health outcomes. Producer Neal Weisman will hold a Q&A after the film.

In God We Teach, a documentary film that follows the “separation of church and state” controversy played out in a very public feud between high school student Matthew LaClair and his history teacher in Kearny, NJ. Information at Director Vic Losick will hold a Q&A after the film.

12 Angry Men. The 1957 film classic starring Henry Fonda, which remains one the best demonstrations of practical skepticism in movie history.

Flatland 1 and Flatland 2, a charming animated exploration of mathematical concepts in an engaging story about a girl named Hex, who dares to think outside the box, based on the 19th century classic novel by Edwin Abbot.

Contagion, Chocolat, The Dish and other major studio films addressing themes of science, reason, and humanism.

    I’d like to attend because I’m totally a human and the name of the festival really appeals to me for some reason.

    I’d love to attend and review the festival for my first blog post, but alas, since I’m long term unemployed I cannot afford the ticket price. Cinema 21 is around the corner from where I live and there’s no place I’d rather spend a rainy Portland weekend.

    My husband & I are new parents and just found a sitter for this film festival. He works from home and spends the majority of his podcast time listening to the likes of Sam Harris, Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, Neil DeGrasse Tyson and listening to Symphony of Science. He’s a geek and I’d like to take him a date he would enjoy since we don’t get to go out too often.

  12. Lin October 24, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

    Oh I would love to go. Not sure if my super religious housemate would join me.

  13. Jacqueline October 24, 2012 at 7:57 pm #

    I would love to win tickets as I enjoy free thought films. More importantly, I have an ignoramus in mind that I’d like to accompany me to the event in my last desperate effort to expand their media viewing realm beyond reality shows.

    Oh pick me…am I too late. Need a movie weekend, with my sad sickness.

  21. Esther October 25, 2012 at 9:37 pm #

    This sounds like an extraordinary way to spend a weekend for two “old fogies” who are so into this kind of stuff.
    Pick us…The Old Swede and The Jewish Princess!

  22. Esther Wright October 26, 2012 at 10:53 am #

    Here is my last name per your request for the will call info.
    Thanks so much! The old Swede’s name is Jan (Yon) Lundin.

    I will neither pander nor plead. I have a job, all my teeth and could easily afford tickets. Give them to me and we’ll pretend, like all else, it was simply random chance.

  24. linda Hainsworth October 27, 2012 at 1:01 am #

    I wanna go!
