911 and BFC Present:
Naked Freedom Film Festival (NFFF), debuting on May 15-16, promises to be the most comprehensive and diverse collection of films to date exploring naked expression in its many colors. Three unique shows will play at two distinctive Seattle venues: Seattle Art Museum and 911. Films will explore themes of body acceptance, body art, public lands advocacy, exploitation, taboo, recreation, emerging body-positive cultures, and the use of the naked body to seek social justice. The films showcase historic moments and the many colorful personalities involved in the spread of body-positive culture.

Naked Freedom Film Festival is another funky project of Body Freedom Collaborative (BFC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the integration and acceptance of non-sexual social nudity in a variety of public and private settings.

NFFF is made possible with generous support from the Naturist Education Foundation (NEF). NEF is the nonprofit informational and educational adjunct to The Naturist Society, which grew and developed from the Free Beach movement in North America.
NEF is an organization of volunteers dedicated to:
• improving the awareness of naturism and body acceptance among both naturists and non-naturists.
