Incontrovertible - British documentary produced by Tony Rooke that features his case, a refusal to pay fees supporting “Terrorism,” or the BBC, who announced the demise of WTC 7, before it happened.

9/11 Decade of Deception- Canadian documentary chronicling The Toronto Hearings in 2011, highlighting the best evidence presented by expert witnesses and the conclusions of an international panel of distinguished judges who agree that there has not been a genuine investigation of 9/11 and that a real investigation is needed.

The Demolition of Truth--Psychologists Examine 9/11
- Produced by Charles Ewing Smith American documentary looking at the psychological impact of 9/11, individually and collectively, what the social sciences tell us about healing the healing processes. Filmmaker, Charles Ewing Smith will also speak.

Speakers include:

Graeme MacQueen- Author of The 2001 Anthrax Deception: The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy, and steering committee member of The Toronto Hearings, Co-editor of The Journal of 9/11 Studies, Phd from Harvard in Buddhist Studies, taught for 30 years at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.

John Meaders - Amazingly, John was born in Brooklyn, New York City on September 11, 1950. He is the youngest of five and attended elementary school on Staten Island, one of the boroughs of NYC, and High School in the East New York section of Brooklyn. He joined the United States Army in 1975 for a four year enlistment. He attained the rank of Specialist Fifth Class or “buck Sergeant”. He was an Electronic Missile System Repairer. He joined the California Highway Patrol in 1981 and after five months of academy training, he began patrolling the freeways and county roads in the South Los Angeles area. He obtained his bachelor of science degree from California State University at Los Angeles in criminal justice in 1988. He was highly honored for his heroism within the CHP. After promoting to sergeant on the California Highway Patrol in 2007, he transferred to Tracy California and then retired in June of 2009 from the Tracy California area office as a Sergeant. He and his wife, Donna, currently live in Loveland, Colorado and enjoy involvement in politics and political action.

Tony Rooke -Tony Rooke is from Chichester in the South of England. He has worked as a screenwriter and composer in both mainstream TV and the independent film world. He woke up to 9/11 around 2005, and like most was very alarmed by the collapse of WTC Building 7. Tonys says: "I come from a family full of police officers. My father, my sister, my brother-in-law were all cops.
Even I was going to be a cop but colour-blindness ruled me out of qualification. Nobody in my family trusts the official 9/11 story". He despises most politicians with the exception of Cynthia McKinney whom he hails as the new Martin Luther King.

Charles Ewing Smith - Charles Ewing Smith currently lives in Los Angeles county and has been working in the film industry a long time. He was a primary editor for 9/11 Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out which became one of the most viewed 9/11 documentaries ever on PBS's website. He could not resist making The Demolition of Truth--Psychologists Examine 9/11, as he felt its compelling message could not be scrapped or edited into the dustbin. A seeker of truth and justice, he has devoted much of his time and energy to raising the public consciousness on important issues.

Mistress of Ceremonies - Bonnie Faulkner, Host of Guns and Butter, A radio program that investigates the relationships among capitalism, militarism and politics, heard on KPFA.

§Update on the 2016 9/11 Truth Film Festival
by Carol Brouillet (cbrouillet [at] Wednesday Aug 31st, 2016 1:38 PM

We have added a speaker-

William Veale retired in 2006 as Chief Assistant Public Defender in Contra Costa County, California after 31 years of trying death penalty cases and the like. He taught Criminal Trial Practice at Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California for eleven years. In 2008 he and famed civil rights lawyer, Dennis Cunningham, filed a lawsuit on behalf of April Gallop, a soldier injured during the 9/11 attack at the Pentagon, against former Vice President Dick Cheney, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Richard Myers accusing them of complicity in mass murder and treason. The case was dismissed in the District Court as frivolous, and the dismissal was affirmed and sanctions imposed by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals. The opinion of that Panel, which included John Mercer Walker, Jr. a first cousin once removed of former President George W. Bush, omitted reference to the principal allegations in Gallop’s Complaint. Despite the $15,000 sanctions, Veale continues to advocate for legal actions against those most obviously responsible for the 9/11 attacks.


The 9/11 Truth Film Festival will be webcasted live and archived at No Lies Radio. No Lies Radio is also assisting in the live stream in New York City on Sept 10-11 where Graeme MacQueen, William Veale and others will gather and discuss legal strategies at Justice in Focus: 9/11 | 2016 – A Weekend Symposium in NYC . The complete schedule is posted at the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance website.
