Cine Migratorio is a migration-themed film festival that will take place May 10-13, 2012 in Santander, Spain. The Festival aims to present a program of artistically accomplished, thematically challenging and stimulating films about migration to students, migrants, Santander residents, and anyone who wishes to join us for this weekend-long event. We hope these films will incite reflection and discussion about migration, but also about the power of film to capture mobility in a modern age.
We welcome all film genres (feature, short, documentary, experimental, animation) and do not endorse any one political stance on migration issues. Cine Migratorio endeavors to screen films that explore a wide range of migration-related themes and issues, from the way in which economic and social forces that drive migration cross as many borders as migrants themselves, to personal migration stories, to films less directly concerned with migration but still resonant with its effects and contexts.
In addition to screenings, Cine Migratorio will feature lectures, workshops, live music, and other events. Leading up to the festival, Cine Migratorio will host an array of programs in local high schools and local centers.
Cine Migratorio will take place May 10-13th in Santander, Spain, in the Paraninfo at the Las Llamas campus of the Universidad Internacional Menendez Pelayo (UIMP).

of global development and various issues related to international aid for economically depressed countries.
We are looking for original, wise and objective productions (documentaries, reportages and social advertising) that will increase the awareness of the viewers on problems of injustice and depravation in developing nations. What we seek are productions that will raise important questions about the state of our contemporary world, and urge people to reflect on the meaning of help for those in need.
We are looking for:
* Documentary films,
* TV Reportages,
* Social advertising/campaigns related to developmental issues.
We are especially interested in themes such as:
1. Interdependence of the Global North and Global South.
2. The ones set out in the UN Millennium Development Goals.
3. Everyday problems of people living in developing countries.
4. Examples of help brought by donors, international organizations, governmental agencies and NGOs - both positive and those who have not been successful.
5. Social advertising/campaigns about UN Millennium Development Goals or development issues.
The Festival will present the best documentaries and commercials on subjects related to developing nations from around the world. We would like to show productions that increase the awareness about the countries' dependency on international aid. We hope that people who will participate in our festival will learn about how global issues affect the everyday lives of people and societies around the world, and how each and every one of us can get involved and make a positive change for people in poorer nations.
