GROUNDBREAKING 179 SUBMISSIONS FROM 43 COUNTRIES

Washington, DC - The Whistleblower Summit & Film Festival announced today the showcase of new independent feature films selected across all categories for the 2019 Whistleblower Summit & Film Festival. The Festival hosts screenings in Washington, DC from July 29 - August 1, 2019.

"The Whistleblower Summit & Film Festival is the intersection between media, politics, culture and entertainment. Whistleblower stories (books and movies) are as American as apple pie. Come to the only Washington, DC film festival with events on Capitol Hill. Rub elbows with famous whistleblowers like Frank Serpico and Jeff Wigand or meet political leaders like Senator Charles Grassley, Representative Elijah Cummings and 'Jonestown' survivor, Representative Jackie Speier." - Michael McCray, Whistleblower Summit Managing Director.

"The Whistleblower Summit is unique because it combines legislative advocacy, public policy discussions with community and social events. During the conference we have panel discussions, press conferences, award presentations, receptions, luncheons, dinner, movie night, book signings, etc." - Marcel Reid, Whistleblower Summit Festival Director.

The Whistleblower Summit recognizes that cinema is a powerful medium for highlighting civil and human rights violations across the globe. It seeks to shine a light on stories of courage and perseverance in the face of injustice, and to encourage individuals to stand together to achieve human rights for all. We are looking for films about whistleblowers, the First Amendment or that touch on one or several human rights issues that are connected to our areas of work this includes freedom of expression, women's rights, discrimination, communal violence, human rights defenders, among other issues. The themes mentioned are not exhaustive, films centered on other civil and human rights issues are equally welcome for submission.
