PLURAL+ is a Youth Video Festival focusing on the topics of migration, diversity, social inclusion and the prevention of xenophobia. It was created in 2008 as a joint initiative between the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM). A network of over 50 partner organizations supports the outreach and global distribution of PLURAL+ videos.
For 10 years, PLURAL+ has provided opportunities for young people to creatively express themselves and share their inspiring stories with the world. Through these videos, youth have challenged the narratives and false perceptions on migration and diversity found in mainstream media.

In 2018, PLURAL+ received 371 video entries from 72 countries, 28 of these videos have been selected for awards. Award-winning videos are from: Australia, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brazil, Czech Republic, Egypt, Ghana, Greece, Guinea Bissau, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Lebanon, Mexico, Philippines, Portugal, Spain, UK, USA, and Zimbabwe.
