PLURAL+ Youth Video Festival 2021

2021 marks the thirteenth anniversary of the PLURAL+ Youth Video Festival, a joint initiative of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM). Today, the two organizations are announcing the 2021 call for video submissions and encouraging youth worldwide to submit films and make their voices be heard about the pressing social issues of our time.

By supporting the distribution of youth-produced media, PLURAL+ recognizes youth as powerful agents of positive social change in a world often characterized by intolerance, and cultural and religious divisions.

Requirements

  • Every year, PLURAL+ invites young people up to 25 years old to submit original and creative short films conveying constructive messages related to the themes of migration, diversity, social inclusion, and the prevention of xenophobia.
  • The winners will be invited all expenses paid to participate in the PLURAL+ Awards Ceremony, which will take place in late 2021.

Selection Criteria

  • With the help of an international jury, IOM and UNAOC will jointly select one short film in each of three age categories (up to 12, 13 to 17, and 18 to 25 years old).
  • This year, they will also award three special prizes: the first one, the Special Award for the Prevention of Xenophobia, will recognize a film that best illustrates the issue of xenophobia and fosters respect for all.
  • The second one, the award #forSafeWorship, will recognize a film that best explores the theme of religious diversity and coexistence between religions and faiths in our modern world.
  • Finally, and for the first time this year, the Award for Solidarity amid COVID-19 will recognize a film that best explores the impact of COVID-19 and related stigma on minority groups, and the need for unity and solidarity to ensure that no one is left behind in terms of equitable access to treatment and vaccines.
  • PLURAL+ partner organizations will also award a multitude of prizes and professional opportunities to several young filmmakers.
