MISSION & OBJECTIVE
UNSPOKEN is a human rights film festival that helps to expose human rights violations and gives a voice to the unspoken.
ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
UNSPOKEN is an annual human rights forum that combines film, art, and a conference into one festival. Held in Utica, NY, in October of each year, this multi-faceted forum seeks not only to give a voice to human rights violations from around the globe, but also to offer practical solutions in order to shape a better tomorrow and give hope to the future. We are seeking both short and feature length films (documentary or fiction) exposing human rights violations from around the globe. ORGANIZERS
