"Independent Viewers Judging Independent Films"

Judge films for this year's Free Speech Film Festival!

Every year, American INSIGHT's Free Speech Film Festival receives film submissions from filmmakers across the globe. They run from 6 to 60 minutes, and are not yet in distribution, so you won't find them on Netflix or Hulu. Become a judge and access these unique and informative films!

At the Free Speech Film Festival, individuals from around the world assess every film, not a closed panel. We've created a simple process. Log on, view the films online, and provide your reviews and feedback.

Choose your pace. Choose genres that interest you. Choose films from specific areas of the world. It's up to you!

Become a Free Speech Film Festival 2022 film judge:

• Select from over 150 original films and shorts

• Watch anytime, on any computer or device, anywhere

• Judge films and vote for this year's Free Speech Film Festival winners

• Learn more about films and filmmakers from around the globe

• Become involved in thriving global community of creative filmmakers who are defining what free speech means to them.

About the Free Speech Film Festival

American INSIGHT's 9th annual Free Speech Film Festival invites filmmakers from across the globe to submit work that focuses on the issues of free speech, human rights and the rule of law, with the goal of inspiring a global movement to rally around these concepts and ideals. Championing these ideas, perspectives and voices is vital to the future of justice around the world. Each year, one film is selected as the Free Speech Award recipient by a global outline audience.


• Watch at least 5 films online during the 3-month period.

• Score/review those films online based on the criteria provided.


• We are seeking judges from the general public. If you lack specific knowledge of film or film making, don't fear!

Time Commitment

• Participation usually requires a couple of hours a month, but we welcome everyone who wants to be more involved.

Confidentiality and Ethics

• We ask that you avoid reviewing any film to which you have a personal, business or collegial relationship.

• We ask that you do not share your review evaluations with others outside of the judging process.


• Access to films is made available as they are submitted. Films submitted after the judging start date go through an initial screening process, and may not be immediately available for review.
