(05 November 2021) – Today at 3 pm CET, AEIDL and its partners will host the Online Award Ceremony of The MAX Diversity Film Festival (MDFF) where the winners of each category will share with the audience what migration stories inspired them to produce their film.
The MDFF is an online competition we launched in May this year to collect both amateur and professional films talking about migration stories in Europe. After 3 months of submissions, with a total of 477 films from 82 countries received, AEIDL did the eligibility assessment and then the 10 members of the jury selected 18 films to be the finalists of their respective categories.
In October, we launched the Watch and Vote competition, an international campaign to promote all the films and encourage the large public to watch and vote on our platform for their favourites. We received almost 2,200 votes during that month.
