The challenges of global migration, the urgent need to preserve indigenous wisdom amidst cultural shifts, and the escalating environmental crises demand our attention. As we step into this new festival year, we recognize the intricate tapestry of human movement, the richness of traditional knowledge at risk, and the critical importance of safeguarding our planet. These themes encapsulate the complex narratives of our time, calling us to explore, understand, and collectively strive for a more inclusive, culturally rich, and sustainable future.

Why Attend?

Spotlighting Change

THENGOIFF is known not just for its films, but for the dynamic and interactive conversations that surround the films. We bring together some of the most influential change-making organizations from across the globe to engage with our audience and help develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the most important issues of our time.

Building Knowledge

Attendees come for more than just films. They come to be inspired, to learn from others, to share best practices, and to understand the challenges, opportunities, and on-ground realities in other developmental sectors. To build a sustainable knowledge is to listen and learn from both local experts and leaders while respecting cultural values.

Cultivating A Community

THENGOIFF is a hub for filmmakers and development industry professionals to connect, learn, share ideas, and be inspired. We create an interactive opportunity, not just for the passive watching of films, but genuine opportunities for networking, creating connections, and building a development community that embraces storytelling as central to its purpose.
