Global Migration Film Festival
International Organization for Migration (IOM)
Launched in 2016
The Global Migration Film Festival (GMFF), an IOM initiative, features films and documentaries showing the diverse reality of migration as well as the contributions that migrants make to their new communities. The goal of the festival is to pave the way for a more diverse, inclusive and balances discussion around the topic of migration.
The objective of the festical is to use films as educational tools that influence perceptions of and attitudes towards migrants, by bringing attention to social issues and creating safe spaces for respectful debate and interaction.
Furthermore, the Festival is an innovative creative avenue for normalizing and broadening discussions of migration through storytelling, and it is an advocacy tool that also tries to draw attention to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
