Global Migration Film Festival to Conclude with Award Ceremony on International Migrants Day

After over 340 screenings in some 100 countries, the film winners of the Global Migration Film Festival will be announced on International Migrants Day (18 December), during the closing ceremony in Geneva, which will take place at the traditional Maison des Arts du Grütli.

The event will include screening of the 10-minute participatory video short film Together United, Not Fragmented created in Jordan by migrants, followed by the screening of Problemski Hotel, by Manu Riche, an acid drama/comedy which portrays the lives of asylum seekers living in limbo in Belgium.

After the screenings, the winners of the Festival selected by the international jury will be announced. In total, six cash prizes will be given:  Three to the Emerging Category Filmmakers and three to the professional category.

In addition to the cash prize, the first place of the professional category will receive the most prestigious prize, La Cosmopolita, the Festival award statuette made by Mwafak.

Mwafak, a Syrian artist who sought refuge in Beirut, and eventually resettled abroad, is one of the main protagonists in the opening film of the Global Migration Film Festival in Geneva ­– Lost in Lebanon. The artist was commissioned to create the award statue for the Festival.

Mwafak describes La Cosmopolita, the statuette he has created as: “A human, female figure standing upright, portraying an optimistic gesture. The woman stands as a symbol of harmonic life and consistent peace. She looks up to the sky, into the future.”
