UFO/ET Experts Discuss the Latest Discoveries


Panel:  See right > “Are We Alone” Panelists

When:  Saturday, April 9, 3PM


The UFO/ET panel will explore the question "Are We Alone?" - a scientific and extensively-researched look at life beyond Earth.  Discussing topics like the existence of crop circles and the government's 'truth embargo' about extra-terrestrial life, three renowned pioneers will lead a conversation that that explores the paradigm shift regarding the subject matter.  After a presentation about the life-changing experience of making the documentary "Crop Circles: Crossovers From Another Dimension" and the topic of Subliminal Education happening since the 1950s, the panelists will take audience questions.



Out of the Blue


Director: James Fox

Type: Documentary

Genre: Documentary

Run Time: 95

When: Saturday, April 9, 630PM


Until the current period or until the last 30 years, it was conventional wisdom, both in science and theology, we’re alone in the universe; a single repository of life anywhere in the known universe. Well, no one believes that anymore. Out of the Blue presents unexplained cases from around the world, investigates 50 years of official contradictions and denials, and puts forth possible reasons for secrecy. The film also examines scientific theories regarding interstellar travel and discusses the current movement for official disclosure on the subject of UFOs – a subject that has been considered by most government officials to be unworthy of serious investigation.

  4. Here was the schedule:

April 5th, 2014 - UFO Symposium at the Sonoma Film Fest - all events were at the Sonoma Community Center. “Thrive,” a provocative, educational documentary kicked the day off - with Q&A from creators Kimberly & Foster Gamble. Standing room only for “The Hidden Hand,” full panel of abductees after!

Our opening UFO Symposium docu-mentary, THRIVE, lifted the veil on what's REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream -- uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving together break-throughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions. Check the practical ideas out here.

Thank you, Foster and Kimberly Gamble, for answering the many questions from the audience. Our favorite exchange was about their personal safety. They released the film simultaneously in 10 languages - that way “the toothpaste was out of the tube” - no stopping the momentum.

Watch the trailer!

Standing room only at “The Hidden Hand” and most of the 150 attendees stayed for the abduction panel moderated by Dr. Charles E. Young.
