In its third edition, the Global Migration Film Festival (GMFF) gathered more than 600 spectators in front of screens in Baghdad, Basra, Erbil, and Mosul to entertain and educate them about the different aspects of migration.
In addition to Erbil and Baghdad, for the first time the universities of Basra and Mosul partnered with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), UN Migration, and opened their doors to enthusiastic audiences.
The GMFF also reached displaced Iraqis in Dibaga Camp and Syrian refugees in Kawergosk Camp in Erbil governorate.
Invisibles tells the story of how the war in Syria radically changed the lives of three young Syrians who fled to Barcelona, Spain.
This year, several films presented in Iraq focused on the reasons behind migration, the impact of conflict on people, and the challenges refugees and migrants face in new, unknown environments.
