• Speechless is an international festival inspired by the art of visual storytelling.

    The festival is named for our signature category—Speechless Shorts—though we also receive and show films in a broader range of categories. In addition to film showcases, Speechless hosts a number of guest speakers, special screenings, and events with food and music.  Read more about Speechless.
