Help us get the word out about I, Pastafari

Published May 2nd, 2019 by Bobby Henderson

Hey everyone, we need your help to get the word out about I, Pastafari: A Flying Spaghetti Monster Story.

Filmmaker Mike Arthur did a great job – he captured the true spirit of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Pastafarian heroes Bruder Spaghettus and Niko Alm are both featured, making the case for freedom of religion and equal treatment under the law. The documentary also shows some of the ongoing court battles we’re involved in. I was impressed with the scope of it, and I want to help Mike get this film seen by the world.

Specifically we need help with two things:

1) Getting the documentary admitted into festivals

2) Finding a distributor

What we need you to do is:

Make a post/tweet on May 2 (International Scurvy Awareness Day) sharing the trailer of the film, with the tags of the film festival’s social media.

That’s the idea. We help get the word out on May 2, the film gets admitted into festivals, it finds a distributor, and the world is able to see what Pastafarianism is all about.

Below is Mike’s detailed instructions / explanation. Please let me or Mike know if you have questions and so forth. Thanks everyone. – bobby

Calling all Pastafarians!

Our God doesn’t require sacrifices, but will you sacrifice 1 minute of your time for an indie Pastafarian filmmaker on the holiest of Pastafarian holidays – International Scurvy Awareness Day?

On May 2nd, 2019 (no need to share anything before that specific date), help the trailer of I, PASTAFARI get in front of a few key documentary film festivals (IDFA, DOK Leipzig, & DOC NYC) by sharing it on Facebook & Twitter (links below) and tagging the festivals social media handle, to show these festival directors that there IS a hunger for this real life pasta story. The more posts/tweets they see, the more likely they will give this film serious consideration to screen at their festival. If hundreds of pastafarians do it together on the same day (May 2nd, anytime), it will be hard for any festival director to ignore.

For example….


Step 1) First go to the FACEBOOK Trailer here: bit.ly/2I7Npsq

Step 2) Click “SHARE”

Step 3) Add this message…

@DOCNYCfest @idfa.nl @DOKLeipzig please select @ipastafaridoc for your 2019 festival! #FSM #FlyingSpaghettiMonster #Pastafarian


Step 1) First go to the TWITTER Trailer here: twitter.com/ipastafaridoc/status/1094578270471966720

Step 2) Retweet it with the below message…

@DOCNYCfest @idfa @DOK_Leipzig please select @ipastafaridoc for your 2019 festival! #FSM #FlyingSpaghettiMonster #Pastafarian

If sharing/retweeting is giving you issues, you can always just compose your own post/tweet and add the Vimeo trailer here:

Just be sure to tag the festival’s social media handle!

    I have a question.
    What does the FSM think about straight edge people?
    Info about straight edge here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straight_edge

    • Captain B says:

      Concerned, John. It would be harmful to their health.

      • John the Sparrowist says:

        Their spiritual health or physical health?

        • Captain B says:

          John, by spiritual health do you mean pertaining to rum or the psyche? If you mean supernatural, the word is an oxymoron.

        • John the Sparrowist says:

          Captain B, I mean spiritual health in the sense of their relationship to the FSM.

        • Captain B says:

          John, FSM Heaven is multi-cultural. It’s even Kosher. Ascetic Pastafarians are no doubt few but would be fully welcomed and get spiritual guidance and blessing from The FSM, who boiled for their sin of not liking rum.

    • Keith says:

      I think Steampunk is better. It is so much more enjoyable.

    I still don’t know what this post means

    I am from the Syrian Church of the flying spaghetti monster and we are willing to translate the Gospel into the Arabic language. we have our Fanbase with more than 16000 followers in the Warland Syria, and we believe that if we do this, the FSM will help to end the war by spreading the word there. so can i contact anybody to get the allowence to translate it and publish it in Arabic, we are not looking for any profit.
