Designed to showcase today’s global Free Speech movement, American INSIGHT invites filmmakers to join this revolution by their submitting films to the Free Speech Film Festival. ONE Award-winning film is selected from six “Official Selections,” chosen from films submitted from around the world.
As they express themselves, or give a voice to the oppressed, American INSIGHT encourages filmmakers to consider what Free Speech, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law mean to them.
American INSIGHT’s annual Free Speech Film Festival is unique in several respects:
- We select and promote only ONE Free Speech Award-winning film each year, giving stronger recognition throughout the next ten months to the topic, the winning film and filmmaker;
- We focus exclusively on deepening the understanding of Free Speech, Human Rights, and the Rule of Law, with a goal of practicing, promoting and preserving their highest principles worldwide;
American INSIGHT’s Free Speech Award Ceremony provides an opportunity for the winning filmmaker to supplement their film with their personal story. Each year, the winning film is linked in perpetuity to American INSIGHT’s educational Free Speech Storyline, which traces the history of individuals who fought for their rights back to the signing of the English Magna Carta in 1215.
