IOM UK Promoting Integration, Inclusion through Migration Film Festivals

IOM UK is supporting the exclusive early screening of Ai Wei Wei’s new film, Human Flow, tonight (05/12) at the prestigious Somerset House in central London. Human Flow is a heart-breaking exploration of the global refugee situation, and despite there being numerous documentaries covering the current refugee situation, none come this close to portraying the scale and severity of it.

The event will round off this year’s London Migration Film Festival (LMFF), which IOM, the UN Migration Agency, is supporting with communications and logistical assistance. IOM UK recognizes the important role that film festivals and other social activities have in facilitating the integration process for migrants.

As part of IOM UK’s community cohesion and integration strategy strand, the LMFF was selected as the forum to mark this year’s International Migrant’s Day (18/12), and as a local partner to IOM’s own Global Migration Film Festival running from 5-18 December and the global youth migration film competition and festival, Plural+. As the local partner, IOM UK and the LMFF organized a second event at the famous Ritzy cinema in Brixton, London.

The sell-out event featured the GMFF entry, Misafir ‘A Guest’, and the winner of the Plural+ Be a Champion for Social Inclusion. The screenings were followed by a short address by the winner Gabriel Brown, and an interactive panel discussion with IOM UK, Doctors Without Borders and the London based children’s charity Coram.
