American INSIGHT provides a center for gathering and growing knowledge about Free Speech in ways that are useful to those who wish to help promote a free society, regardless of where they live. Combining broadcast-quality film production with fully integrated web communications capabilities, American INSIGHT seeks to reach broad audiences worldwide through three interdependent programs: Free Speech Award, Free Speech Storyline, and Free Speech Archive.
The Free Speech AWARD + Free Speech Film Festival celebrates the principles of free speech and the Rule of Law and is presented yearly to one film chosen via an online film festival competition. The competition draws films from around the world.
The Free Speech STORYLINE documents the evolution of Free Speech and the Rule of Law since the sealing of Magna Carta in England in 1215. It provides an interactive and educational timeline of historically significant people and events. American INSIGHT’s Free Speech Award-winning film is added to the Free Speech Storyline every year.
The Free Speech BLOG generates original materials that highlight Free Speech heroes, historical facts, and groundbreaking discoveries that are made during American INSIGHT‘s ongoing research into the history of Free Speech.
The Free Speech ARCHIVE preserves rare footage and multimedia materials from all of American INSIGHT’s events over the organization’s thirty-year history of promoting Free Speech and the Spoken Word.
Staffed by university Free Speech INTERNS, all of American INSIGHT projects have been created and developed to showcase their emerging talents. Over the years, American INSIGHT has provided educational opportunities to over 50 interns from over 20 colleges and universities.
