Day 92, Year of #Mygration: Global Migration Film Festival

Examples of film posters, one called 'Nana'

The UN Migration Agency begins casting a wide net this week to bring forth the talent behind one of the migration world’s enduring art forms: motion pictures. It’s all part of the UN Together campaign to promote diversity worldwide.

To select a compelling roster of films to be screened at the International Organization for Migration's (IOM) December 2018 Global Migration Film Festival (GMFF), the Geneva-based body is calling for submissions of Full-Length Feature and Short Films, in all genres: fiction, documentary and animation. 

“The journeys migrants take, sometimes full of peril, often full of hope, have been the subject of films throughout the history of cinema,” said IOM Director General William Lacy Swing. “We hope the films at our next festival will install understanding, empathy with characters, awe at their journeys and admiration for those who welcome their new neighbours.”
