We are proud to announce that our film, “Paying the Price for Peace,” is one of the final six “Official Selection” films of American INSIGHT’s 2016 Free Speech Film Festival! American Insights’s 2016 Free Speech Film Festival (tm) attracted 70 films by (or about) 32 different countries this year; and 41 citizens from 10 states across America and 7 countries around the world signed up to judge these films online. Due to the potentially volatile nature of the Free Speech content that is submitted by filmmakers each year, they do not hold a "festival" of screenings. Instead, all six winning films are announced on the night of the Award Ceremony; and their filmmakers are featured for a period of one year on their websites, Free Speech Blog, and monthly newsletters. The competition this year was intense and the judging was close. Films were submitted on a variety of highly-charged global topics.

Nussaibah Younis points out to NPR that the Iraq War should have taught us an important lesson. When we have a national security goal in the country, we need to come to a clear-headed decision on the kinds of resources that need to be committed to achieve our goal. Otherwise, we might as well not bother because we might end up making a worse situation rather than a better one.
