PLURAL+ Youth Video Festival

Are you a young person between the ages of 9-25? Are you passionate about building a more inclusive, tolerant society? Do you think media messages can help?  If so, PLURAL+is for you!

In collaboration with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and other international partners, the UNAOC is launching a youth video festival exploring themes related to migration and diversity.

Recognizing youth as powerful agents of social change in a world often characterized by intolerance, and cultural and religious divisions, PLURAL+ is aimed at involving youth in addressing  the key issues in their community related to migrant integration, inclusiveness, identity, diversity, human rights and social cohesiveness. The practical contributions of young people – whether they are migrants, second-generation immigrants or non-migrants – can come not just by identifying constraints but also through promoting a climate of respect and appreciation for each other, helping to point the way towards a more enlightened world.

PLURAL+ invites youth to do just that by submitting short videos on their thoughts, experiences, opinions, questions and suggestions on these issues and how to promote harmonious yet diverse societies. Submissions will be accepted from 1 June-30 September 2009. A prestigious international jury will announce the winners at an awards ceremony at New York’s Paley Center for Media on 18 December 2009, coinciding with International Migrants Day.
