Global Migration Film Festival 2018

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the UN Migration Agency are proud to present the third edition of the Global Migration Film Festival in Thailand (GMFF 2018).


Supported by Save the Children, the Embassy of Canada, IOM X and the Bangkok Screening Room, GMFF 2018 promises to build on the Festival’s continued success with 7 critically-acclaimed and award-winning films. From the dilemmas faced by North Koreans attempting to escape into China, to the struggles faced by intersex and transgender people in Kenya, each film captures the trials and tribulations, joys and personal moments of those who leave their homes in search of a better life.


GMFF 2018 is also proud to announce that the critically-acclaimed 2018 Danish documentary, Heartbound, will premiere in Bangkok for the very first time at the Festival. Heartbound tells the story of how over 900 Thai women ended up married to Danish men in the small village in northern region of Jutland. The film follows four of these Thai-Danish couples over ten years in an intimate chronicle that explores universal questions of love and romance, dreams and everyday hardship, life and death, and the very nature of family. Three other films – A Thousand Girls Like Me, Fremde Tochter and The Merger – will also be featured on the big screen in Thailand for the first time.


– Admission is free-of-charge for all screenings.

– Tickets for each film will be released 30 minutes before its screening and will be issued on a first come, first served basis.
