PLURAL+ 2015 Youth Video Festival on Migration, Diversity and Social Inclusion Call for Entries
Thursday, May 14, 2015

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) invite you to submit original and creative videos focusing on PLURAL+ themes: Migration, Diversity and Social inclusion. Recognizing youth as powerful agents of social change in a world often characterized by intolerance, and cultural and religious divisions, PLURAL+ invites youth to address key challenges and opportunities related to social inclusion and cohesion, migrant integration, respect for identity, diversity, and human rights, both at local and global levels.

Young people aged 9-25 are invited to submit short videos of five minutes maximum in length for consideration in the PLURAL+ Youth Video Festival. Each year, since 2009, a prestigious international jury selects three PLURAL+ International Jury Award winners in each age category (9-12, 13-17, 18-25).

International Jury Award winners will be invited to New York, all travel expenses paid, to present their work at the PLURAL + 2015 Awards Ceremony at the Paley Center for Media in December 2015. PLURAL+ partner organizations will also award other prizes and professional opportunities to over 20 of the best videos submitted, such as winning participants presenting their work at film and video festivals, conferences and events around the world.

PLURAL+ supports young people’s expression by providing them with a variety of media platforms and distribution networks, including broadcasts, video festivals, conferences and events around the world. PLURAL+ not only provides young people with an effective platform to express themselves on key migration and diversity issues, but also reinforces the firm belief of IOM and UNAOC that youth are powerful and creative agents of social change. Further information, including guidelines, regulations, awards, and the entry form can be found at the PLURAL+ website at: pluralplus.unaoc.org
