On Wednesday, October 22, Freedom House and the Motion Picture Association of America, in support of Free Speech Week, will host a discussion on Creative Freedom and the First Amendment. The event will be held in Washington, D.C.
- Ann Hornaday, film critic, the Washington Post
- Alyssa Rosenberg, cultural and political columnist, the Washington Post
Using current on-screen examples, the discussion will focus on how movies and television shows in the United States are powerful instruments that inform and enlighten us, advancing debates on crucial social and cultural issues. The creative freedom the First Amendment protects is fundamental to the ability of storytellers to tell these stories through television and film in America.
→ Free Speech Week is an annual, non-partisan national event celebrating the value of freedom of speech.
