American INSIGHT’s nonpartisan, interfaith 2024 Free Speech Film Festival encourages INDEPENDENT filmmakers to exercise their right of Free Speech and the power of film to speak out on issues that are important to them and to their communities. We do not accept films that are produced by commercial entities of any type.
Championing different perspectives (and listening to other points of view) is vital to the future of Democracy! During the past decade, we have received FREE SPEECH FILMS from hundreds of filmmakers in over 58 countries…. Be first in line to submit your most recent film from February 1st – April 30th, 2024!
Each year, ONE film is selected as the Free Speech Award Winner by audiences of all ages from around the globe, as well as by residents of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: a “cradle of liberty” for decades before the American Revolution.
American INSIGHT’s annual Free Speech Film Festival is unique in that it showcases FREE SPEECH FILMS, and also provides a marketing platform, networking opportunities, and educational workshops to our 6 Official Selection Award-winning independent filmmakers in need of exposure and visibility.
Each “Official Selection” Winner receives a full month of attention in our newsletters, Spotlight Blog posts, social media channels, plus a full SPEAK EZ recorded interview that will be seen for years to come. Find more SPEAK EZs here: https://watch.eventive.org/freespeechaward
Only ONE of the 6 Official Selection films is chosen to receive the Free Speech Award, receive our $1,000 honorarium … and offered the opportunity to receive the Award in person in Philadelphia, PA.
Help to educate future filmmakers now, by sharing the wisdom of your experience!
Students enrolled in American INSIGHT’s online course “Make History Every Day!” will write about your film for years to come, as they discuss how the core values of Free Speech, Human Rights and the Rule of Law emerge in societies around the world through the lens of independent filmmakers.
Submit your FREE SPEECH FILM from February 1st – April 30th!
