We have met and interviewed some inspiring people, both well-known and regular atheists going about their lives. I hope you'll enjoy the 1st official teaser (video above). The documentary has officially premiered at the San Francisco Atheist Film Festival. Reviews have started to appear on a variety of blogs and websites, including the Washington  Post.

This is a film about atheists: the stories of people who have come out as atheists, the stories of people who are actively campaigning and the struggles they’ve had to deal with, the stories of every day atheists, ... A documentary that shows that “we are just people too, trying to live a good decent life”.

We have several people enthusiastically involved in this project, including a few well known atheist bloggers like Greta Christina, Hemant Mehta and Richard Carrier. The American Humanist Association and the James Randi Foundation have also voiced their support for this film.

Please share this video and website with your friends, atheists and believers. We really believe this is an important subject and hope you feel the same way too.

If you think this is a worthwhile project please consider getting involved in some way. Just email us :-)
