The International Multicultural Film Festival “IMFF”

The International Multicultural Film Festival “IMFF” awaits you for 3 weeks of independent films made by filmmakers from vastly diverse ethnic and religious communities across the globe!
IMFF will celebrate diversity in traditions, opinions, cultures, and religions. It will celebrate those filmmakers who are struggling to showcase their works, within a climate of marginalisation and isolation, racial or religious discrimination, secularism, sectarianism, or anti-religious sentiment. IMFF is not to open a cultural war but to build bridges of tolerance, understanding, and inclusion.

Films Have no race or religion


Films have no race or religion! We all use moving pictures as a medium to tell a story or pass a message or change the world around us. So IMFF is not about race or religion, but about a vast group of people and communities who happen to be diverse in their race, religions, skin colour, political views, traditions, and cultures.
