PLURAL+ 2010 winners were announced during the Awards Ceremony at the Paley Center for Media

On Friday November 12, a crowd of nearly 200 gathered at the Paley Center for Media in New York City to honor the winners of the 2010 PLURAL+ Youth Video Festival. A joint program of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and the International Organization for Migration, PLURAL+ provides a platform for young people globally, ages nine to 25, to share their personal experiences, views, questions and hopes regarding issues such as migration, cultural polarization and identity.

Video shorts (one to five minutes in length) arrived from more than 40 countries this year representing a range of topics including: the plight of youth refugees in Austria; the life of Roma girls in Slovenia; migrants’ rights in Ecuador; and a child's vision for a more inclusive India.

This year’s International Jury Award Winners were Aarohi Mahesh Mehendale (Ages 9-12) of India, Martina Hudorovic (Ages 13-17) of Slovenia, and Sebastian Kraner (Ages 18-25) of Austria. Both Mehendale and Kraner were in attendance to receive their awards as well as Ryan Tan Chuan Min of Malaysia, who received the PLURAL+ Paley Center Media Education Award, and Rebeca Cueva Rodriguez of Yupanas Foundation, RED NNACE Project, who accepted the PLURAL+ Roots and Routes Award on behalf of Ecuadorian filmmaker Maria Jose Vargas. Eleven other films were also screened that evening and received various awards from PLURAL+ partners.

The ceremony was emceed by U.S. State Department Cultural Envoy/ Hip-Hop Ambassador George “Rithm” Martinez. Distinguished guests and presenters included Marc Scheuer, director of the UNAOC; Michele Klein Solomon, Permanent Observer to the United Nations for the International Organization for Migration; Diane Lewis, Vice President of Public Affairs and Programs at the Paley Center for Media; Chaim Lifteski, Chief, Television Section, Radio and Television Service UN; Tey Cottingham, Head of Education and Institutional Markets at the National Film Board of Canada; and Karen Cirillo, Executive Producer, Children’s Broadcasting Initiatives at UNICEF.
