About the festival:

The Global Migration Film Festival features exceptional films about migration which is one of the greatest phenomena of our times. These films will take you into the often unrecognized reality of migration and enable you looking for answers to questions such as: Why do people flee their homes? What challenges do they face during their difficult journey? What are their lives as strangers in an unfamiliar environment far away from their homes and how do locals perceive them? And how does a society change and divide in countries affected by migration?

Every year, the festival is organized by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in over 100 countries around the world.
