Switzerland — The UN Migration Agency (IOM) is inviting professional and emerging filmmakers to submit perception-changing films about the migrant experience for the second annual Global Migration Film Festival (5–18 December).
The Global Migration Film Festival showcases films that capture the promise and challenges of migration for those who leave their homes in search of a better life and the unique contributions migrants make to their new communities.
“The journeys migrants take, sometimes full of peril,
often full of hope, have been the subject
of films throughout the history of cinema.
We hope the films at our next festival will instill
understanding, empathy with characters, awe
at their journeys and admiration for those who
welcome their new neighbors.”
- IOM Director General, William Lacy Swing
