The eighth annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival will explore what featured speaker, professor, author, former diplomat, Peter Dale Scott has termed “deep events.” Scott defines "deep events" as those that are systematically ignored or falsified in the mainstream media and public consciousness. The Film Festival, will be held again at the historic Grand Lake Theater, 3200 Grand Ave, Oakland, on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 from 2 pm to 11 pm, and is a benefit for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance.
9/11 bears the fingerprints of an audacious false flag operation, but it also fits into a long historical pattern of events designed to provoke and alter public sentiment and behavior. A range of films and film excerpts, along with speakers, will analyze multiple events, including the Oakland bombing of activist Judi Bari, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the London bombings. Speakers will include Chris Emery film producer of A Noble Lie – Oklahoma City 1995; Professors Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff of Project Censored; Mark Gaffney, author of Black 9/11 Money, Motive, and Technology and The 9/11 Mystery Plane And the Vanishing of America. In addition to the films specifically about 9/11, including The Toronto Hearings on 9/11 - Uncovering Ten Years of Deception, the new one hour television version of 9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out, the documentary I am Fishead will premiere and cast some light on psychopaths, empathy, authority and the power of moral courage.
Bonnie Faulkner, producer of the popular KPFA radio program Guns and Butter will serve as mistress of ceremonies. Tickets are $10- $7 at the door.

Over the years the Bay Area has hosted numerous 9/11 Truth rallies, events, speakers and produced many significant documentaries, books, outreach materials, music, and radio shows. The film festival generally draws hundreds of activists, supporters, as well as the general public to an all day event which provides, in addition to films and speakers, an opportunity for dialogue, socializing, and organizing in the spacious lobbies of the theaters and nearby restaurants. Volunteers also promote the events through street actions, freeway blogging, and whatever means they can to break censored ideas and information to fuel the growing movement for peace, justice, truth, accountability, genuine democracy.
