The third annual IOM's Global Migration Film Festival will take place between 28 November and 18 December in more than 100 countries. Croatian GMFF film screenings will take place on the 8th and 18th December in close cooperation with this year's partners:  Zagreb University - Department of Croatian Studies and the Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies. More details regarding projection of the documentary "Bushfallers" with a free entrance for all interested will be published soon on this website.

Over the years, films have been used to inform, entertain, educate and provoke debate. It is in this spirit that IOM, the UN Migration Agency, launched The Global Migration Film Festival (GMFF) in 2016.

Cinema and migration have a magical bond stretching back over a century ago when film makers, many of whom were immigrants themselves, began making movies that depicted a world on the move. Their films brought the dramatic, poignant and comic stories of migrants to diverse audiences, through images that provoked feeling amongst people of every culture.

The Global Migration Film Festival (GMFF) features films and documentaries that capture the promise and challenges of migration, and the unique contributions that migrants make to their new communities. The goal of the festival is to pave the way for greater discussion around one of the greatest phenomenon of our time.
