The world is my home | The International Exile Film Festival (EFF)
EFF -Background

Never before in human history has there been seen such a massive flow of refugees. Millions of people are fleeing because of their political opinions, religious beliefs or ethnicity. The refugee stream does not only affect a particular region, but all Europe and the rest of the world.

Exile filmmakers belong to all these refugees and portray their fates from within. They have succeeded in creating culturally prominent and artistic films that illustrate the global problem that the refugee situation is. But difficulties in distributing individual and non-commercial films made in exile, has as a consequence that they do not reach out to their audience. Thus, the films are deprived the power they could have in influencing public opinion and individuals in society.
