The MAX Diversity Film Festival (MAXDFF) is a space for both amateur and professional filmmakers to showcase their stories and experiences of migration. The finalist films are available to watch online, with the audience having the last word in selecting the winners until the award ceremony 5 November 2021, 3:00 pm CET.
The not-for-profit competition launched in May 2021 and a total of 477 creators from 82 countries have responded to the call. After an expert evaluation, the finalists have been announced in four categories: amateur short films, amateur long films, professional short films and professional long films.
The finalist films can be watched and voted for online here. Voting is open until 29 October 2021.
In addition to crowning the winners, the audience will also select the recipient of the public award. At the award ceremony on 5 November, the winners will share the stories of migration and diversity which inspired their films.
A more in-depth debate with the film festival winners and organisers will take place on 15 December to explore how storytelling can encourage a more inclusive and welcoming society.
The festival is organised as part of the MAX project, a project co-funded by the European Commission's Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF). The project's goal is to positively influence migration discourse by fleshing out the stories of real people.
