A world for Change 2022

IMEFF 2022 will be held in Winnipeg, Canada in September 2022

International Migration and Environmental Film Festival is a not-for-profit cultural organization that raises awareness about migration and environmental issues through the wonderful medium of film. Founded by Michael Osheku and Jessica Lancasterla

IMEFF is dedicated to presenting the best of international film, documentary, photo and artwork that captures migration, trafficking, refugees, pollution, habitat loss, climate change, to educate, entertain, inform and encourage conversations, provokes debate about changes, innovation, sustainability and how to make the world a better place for every creature. 

The aim of the festival is to raise awareness, encourage discussion and inspire people on the act of a diverse range of important migration and environmental issues and to reshape a divisive narrative using film and the arts.

During the festival, we have the opportunities for officially selected projects and filmmakers/ Artists to participate in screenings and discussions with the audience from Non-governmental organizations, embassies, ministries, high school and college-level students. And we will be organizing a community screening throughout the year. Narratives and documentaries, feature and shorts personal or global stories, highly educative, entertaining and informative are welcome for consideration.


To embrace diversity and champion local, minority and creative voices. Issues and solutions are linked to the audience’s values, maximizing relevance and motivating them to take action.
