*The aim of “Speechless” is to have a program that plays with the idea of communication. Verbal language is not the only way to express or tell a story. We’ve decided to accept films with songs that have singing, but the lyrics must not be relevant.  So, this includes music videos.  Characters may also say things like “huh, hello, hey, ouch”, etc. Any words or noises that are internationally recognized. 

If you are a part of a film collective, media center, or a group of filmmaking buds, we are interested in submissions of collective work to be featured this year.  

email with any questions: gadaboutfilmfest (at) gmail.com

If your film is accepted it will be screened at The Gadabout Film Festival in Bloomington Indiana USA April 2014, then considered for a touring program that will screen in over 10 countries throughout the year.
