The Free Thinking Film Society was established in 2007 in Ottawa to celebrate
the efforts of risk-taking documentarians whose work espouses the values
of limited, democratic government, free market economies, equality of
opportunity rather than equality of result, and the dignity of the
individual, all underscored by a healthy and patriotic respect for
Western culture and traditions.
