Films include: Closed Sea (Mare Chiuso, dir. Andrea Segre, Stefano Liberti, 2012), a film about Libyan refugees trying to get to Italy, some filmed by the travellers on their mobile phones from the boat.  In light of the recent tragedy off the coast of Italy where hundreds of Africans died while trying to reach Europe, this programme will throw much-needed light on some of the biggest issues facing the world today - the right of movement of people and the implications of European foreign policy. Also showing will be Leave to Remain (dir. Bruce Goodison, 2013), made with asylum seekers in East London.

Festival Director Mick Csáky says: “Last year, thanks to the generosity of the Bertha Foundation, I had the good fortune to secure a grant to develop a long-held ambition to stimulate an active dialogue between media producers in both the Global North and the Global South. And now, just eighteen months later, we are launching the very first One World Media Festival with the central theme “Creating Global Conversations”. Having had the privilege of being a trustee of One World Media for many years, I am thrilled by this opportunity to stage the very first One World Media Festival in association with Open City Docs at University College London.”
