The Atheist Film Festival is happening in San Francisco this Saturday, August 11! But you probably surmised that from the headline. I can’t sneak anything past you people…
An all-day Festival Pass is just $45 in advance ($50 at the door) and gives you access to 7 feature films and two shorts programs. Individual tickets are $10 in advance ($12 at the door). The feature films include “Salvation Boulevard,” “The Invention of Lying,” “The Lord Is Not On Trial Here Today,” “Day Night Day Night,” “End of the Line,” “In God We Teach,” “Waiting for Armageddon,” and “No Dinosaurs in Heaven” — and directors of five of the seven feature films will be there do do Q&A after the films! (Info on all the feature films is at the festival website.)
It’s going to be at the Roxie, 3117 16th Street between Valencia and Guerrero (near the 16th & Mission BART station). There’ll be different tracks in the Big Roxie and Little Roxie theaters — so if you’ve already seen one of the movies, or one of them just isn’t what you’re in the mood for, you can hop over to the other theater and check out what’s happening there instead.
Plus there’s a director’s reception on Friday, with wine, nosh, cheesecake, and schmoozing with five of the directors! You can attend for $50, or for $75 you can be a Stellar Supporter and go to the director’s reception and get a VIP Festival Pass.
And check out this nifty festival trailer — created by Why Are You Atheists So Angry? cover designer Casimir Fornalski! If this doesn’t make you want to check out the Festival, I don’t know what’s wrong with you.
This promises to be an awesome time. I’ve been to every one of San Francisco’s Atheist Film Festivals since they started, and they have all kicked ass. If you’re in the Bay Area this weekend, I hope to see you there!
