2nd Annual Global Migration Film Festival in Bratislava attracted 270 visitors

The Global Migration Film Festival is organised by IOM in more than 100 countries all around the world every year. This year the festival in Slovakia has teamed up with the International Documentary Film Festival One World. They jointly created a separate film section World on the Move that featured films about lives of people on the flee, about perception and acceptance of migrants in European countries and how the society changes and divides under the influence of migration.

Two debates with directors of the film Czech Allah and the film Salam Neighbor followed after these film screenings.

Altogether, 272 people came to see the films and debates in the section World on the Move at Kino Lumière in Bratislava on 15 and 16 October 2017.
