Words are everywhere.
In each sphere of society, they reflect our thoughts, reflexions and ideas.
Spoken or written, they convey stories, information and messages.
The only exception to this hegemony of words is arts.
Painting, sculpture, music, photography, installation and video art are the only mediums that are able to convey a message without the use of words.
“Without Words Film Festival” celebrates once a year since 2014, video art that uses words only to announce its title and author.
