International Freethought Film Festival
Location: Cinefest Film Theater
66 Courtland St SE Ste #240
The International Freethought Film Festival is in its fourth season! IFFF 2014 will take place in Atlanta, Georgia from November 7th-9th at the Cinefest Film Theater. The categories of films that we screen range from live action, animation, documentary, experimental and narrative features and shorts. The films are captivating, thought provoking, entertaining and the selections reflect our mission statement–promoting reason, critical thinking and freedom of inquiry through the medium of film.
The International Freethought Film Festival is a niche film festival for the bold. Examples of themes in the Freethought niche are those that challenge what some societies and cultures deem unchallengeable, such as religion or government policies. The examination of truth claims that are of interest to skeptics, such as paranormal claims, alternative medicine, UFO’s, psychics and astrology, fits this niche. Films that shed light on Human Rights violations, and stories of women and men who take a humanistic approach to affect positive change in society, have a home at IFFF. The clash between scientific findings and religious/superstitious traditions is a common theme among submissions as well.

It’s the monthly meetup for the Morrow chapter of Recovering from Religion! We will meet to discuss issues directly related to religious indoctrination, struggles faced, and how to better overcome them.
There is no proselytizing of any kind allowed at these meetings. While BN Inc, is a proud partner and facilitator, by no means is this a tool for recruitment. Any donations incurred as a result of these meetings will go directly toward RR efforts. Also, be sure to join the new Meetup group for this chapter.
Thanks so much, and we look forward to seeing you!!!

We are back to our regularly scheduled General Meeting for November! This month, we will be featuring a special guest speaker, Dr. Duav Evans. Dr. Evans is the Founder and Chief Success Office (CSO) of Keen Advisors, LLC, which specializes in personal and professional development. His background is in higher education and corporate training. He earned a Ph.D. in Leadership in Higher Education from Capella University. He also holds an MBA from University of Phoenix and a B.A. in History from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Along with running his speaking and consulting business, he teaches undergraduate business and U.S History. Dauv enjoys traveling around the country sharing his story to help others become better at life. He wants others to be successful with understanding the “how” by finding the opportunities in the “now”.
Dr. Evans is the author of “Don’t Forget To Breathe”, and is currently working on a book about atheism in the Black community. An atheist himself, Dr. Evans will be speaking on his journey, and will also be collecting interviews from meeting attendees for this project. Participation is optional, but will be worthwhile.
