PLURAL+ Youth Video Festival

DEADLINE:19 June 2020

The PLURAL+ Youth Video Festival is a joint initiative of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC).

Every year, PLURAL+ invites young people up to 25 years of age to submit original and creative short films conveying constructive messages related to the themes of migration, diversity, social inclusion, and the prevention of xenophobia.


  • Young people up to 25 years of age are eligible to submit

  • PLURAL+ video entries must be between one and five minutes and can be of any genre — animation, documentary, music video, comedy, etc.


A panel of international jurors will select one PLURAL+ Award winner in each of three age categories (up to 12 years; 13 to 17-year old; 18 to 25-year old).

IOM and UNAOC will jointly select three videos to receive:

  • The Special Award for the Prevention of Xenophobia
  • The Future We Want Award
  • The #forSafeWorship Award

PLURAL+ partner organizations will also award a multitude of prizes and professional opportunities to several young filmmakers.

PLURAL+ winners will be invited, with all expenses paid, to participate in the PLURAL+ Awards Ceremony later in the year. There also will be a series of side events providing opportunities for professional development.
