The Migrant World Film Festival is an annual festival held in South Korea and hosted by the Migrant World TV station. The festival opens in Seoul in the summer months and travels to other parts of the country where there is a high concentration of migrants. A section of he Film Festival is always dedicated to productions by migrants. In addition, the festival screens films from around the world that cover issues of relevance to migrant workers and so contribute to efforts in South Korea to bridge the gap between migrants and the native population whilst celebrating cultural diversity. The Migrant World Film Festival is significant in that it is organised by migrants themselves. It creates a space for migrants and Koreans to watch these films together. All film screenings are free and open to the general public. Since its inception, the Migrant World Film Festival has enjoyed support from nationally and internationally acclaimed Korean directors and actors.
