The festival is a joint initiative of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAoC) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), in partnership with many important international agencies.
PLURAL + aims to empower young people to speak about what they think of migration and diversity and be heard by others all over the world.
Youth from all over the world (ages 9 to 25) are invited to submit short videos on their thoughts, experiences, opinions, and questions on migration-related themes and on the challenges of ensuring respect and understanding among various communities.
An international jury which includes youth representatives, film critics and critically acclaimed filmmakers such as Abbas Kiarostami, will announce PLURAL + winners in New York on 18 December 2009, coinciding with International Migrants Day. The winning videos will receive cash awards as well as professional opportunities in addition to international exposure through film festivals, conferences, broadcast, satellite, and internet,
