More than 150 inspiring entries were received exploring multiculturalism through the lens of everyday stories, with 12 shortlisted films shown on the big screen as part of a sold out evening of cinema at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) on 23 May 2019.

Presented in partnership with Swinbourne University of Technology, the VMC Film Festival was attended by emerging and established filmmakers, a range of guests from the film industry, sponsors, Multicultural Ambassadors, VMC Regional Advisory Council members, Members of Parliament and supporters of diversity.

Now in its third year, the festival invited emerging and established filmmakers from diverse cultural backgrounds across Victoria and Australia to share stories that contribute to ‘making diversity great again’.

With efforts to promote cultural diversity and inclusion under threat for some time now, and fear and division on the rise around the globe, the 2019 theme called on films that highlight the positive side of cultural diversity and potential barriers to social inclusion.
