As storytellers, we believe the words that we say create the world in which we live in; we believe that our words have the power to transform who we are as human beings, and our environment. Thus, we communicate using colorful words of courage, compassion and authenticity, and we say them on the third largest LED screen on the east coast of the United States of America, at the SAY IT LOUD Film Festival. Wanna share your story?
Films will be selected based on their ability to move, touch and inspire viewers. The subject matter of the films will include, and not be limited to: the Baltimore Uprising, the black male experience, the police officer experience, women’s rights, Native-American history, the immigrant experience and immigration policy, Cuban Marielitos, LGTBQ community, persecution of Jews, the Nation of Islam, organized religion, political prisoners, mental illness, corruption, overpopulation, pro-life, pro-choice, education, sanitation, eating disorders, addiction, impoverished communities, natural disasters, the homeless, people with disabilities, animals, and Mother Earth. Our purpose is to unite, engage and inspire all filmmakers and audience members, around the world.
