This year’s Film Festival was dedicated to the memory of Chuck Millar, Giulietto Chiesa, and Sandra Brown, courageous, loving, truth seekers, who will be deeply missed.
Our event was held on Thursday, September 10, 2020,
The Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance proudly presented our 16th Annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival
2020 has been an unusual year; weddings have been cancelled, schools closed, almost all large public gatherings banned, the global economy dismantled; the middle class and Main Street’s small and medium sized businesses have been struggling to survive. In California, the film industry, the theaters were hit hard. The Grand Lake Theater, which has generously hosted countless events and 15 prior 9/11 Truth Film Festivals was closed.
In March, the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance could no longer meet legally and was forced to hold meetings in cyberspace. No Lies Radio hosted Zoom meetings and discussions and organizing continued, despite the obstacles and challenges that everyone faced. The group voted to go “virtual” this year, with the assistance of No Lies Radio who has been webstreaming the live Film Festival for many years.
We missed the Grand Lake Theater, the chance to hug, greet and talk with old friends and make new ones, the popcorn, the cookies, being together, in person. However, a virtual Film Festival was the best we could do, and it did allow some interactivity, questions and answers, and bringing in distant speakers, without dealing with airports and hotels. Guns and Butter’s Bonnie Faulkner will kicked off the Film Festival, as she has for 16 years! Allen Michaan, owner of the Grand Lake Theater, made a cameo appearance to welcome our virtual audience.
The impact of 9/11 continues to shape US domestic and foreign policy, robbing us of our liberties, and costing millions of lives, as the subsequent wars continue to wreak havoc abroad. We have been committed to “seek and disseminate truths about the terrible crimes committed on September 11, 2001, exposing gaps and deceptions in the official story. Our goal is to inspire more eyewitness revelations, truthful media coverage, and a movement that will bring the responsible criminals to justice and eliminate governmental and corporate policies that enable criminal elements to commit such acts.”
2020’s Featured Films included-‘Calling Out Bravo 7; The 2020 Edition’ with an intro from the film’s producer.
Produced by Firefighters for 9/11 Truth, this excellent, comprehensive documentary, includes details on the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings on 9/11 that are not well known. Very informative and important, a must see, especially for those who have never realized the deep flaws within the official narrative.
The co-founder of the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, Ken Jenkins introduced ‘The Genesis of The 9/11 “War on Terror”: How Much Does Mainstream Academia Really Know?’
Compiled from an excellent presentation by Dr. Piers Robinson on 9/11/2019 at the Public Master Class on the events of September 11, 2001 in Zurich, Switzerland. Dr Piers Robinson is Co-Director of the Organisation for Propaganda Studies, convenor of the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media and associated researcher with the Working Group on Propaganda and the 9/11 Global ‘War on Terror’.

Produced by James Corbett, The Corbett Report. A detailed look at the whistleblowers, that have spoken out, whose voices and stories have challenged the official narrative. They include- Kevin Ryan, Cate Jenkins, Barry Jennings, Michael Springmann and William Rodriguez.
Also produced by James Corbett, The Corbett Report, we had invited James to come speak, but we agreed that we would instead screen his new piece which looks at 9/11 and Covid19. It wasn’t possible for us to show the film in its entirety at the film festival, but we were able to share a short message from James and what he had finished by the day before our event. Fortunately the film is now available for all to watch in its entirety. The topic couldn’t be more timely.
