Plural+ Youth Video Festival 2017


PLURAL+ festival is a platform for young people to express themselves on key migration and diversity issues and reinforce the belief that youth are powerful and creative agents of social change in the world.
The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations together with the International Organisation for Migration have launched a call for youth participation in Plural+ Youth Video Festival 2017, inviting the world’s youth to submit original and creative videos focusing on PLURAL+ themes: migration, diversity and social inclusion.

Who can participate?
Young people up to 25 years old.
Multiple youth may work together to make one video, as long as all members of the group are maximum 25 years of age.

How to participate:
- The video can be done in any style or genre – animation, documentary, drama, music video, comedy etc. – whatever you decide best represents what you think about migration and diversity.
- Videos must be maximum 5 minutes long, including title and end credits.
- Videos must have been completed after January 2015 and, if not in English, must have English subtitles. - Preferably all videos should be submitted on DVDs, or through a file hosting website of choice.
For DVD submissions please check the competition rules.

An international jury will award prizes in three age-based categories: up to 12, 13 to 17, 18 to 25 years old.
The three winners will each receive US$ 1,000 as well as an invitation (travel and accommodation expenses paid) to attend the PLURAL+ Awards Ceremony held in New York (USA) in the fall of 2017.

Deadline: 4 June 2017, before midnight (New York City Time GMC -5hours).
