Multicultural Film Festival Roadshow 

The films in this program, the first of three, are outcomes from an ongoing collaboration between Swinburne University and the Victorian Multicultural Commission. The collaboration explores the changing socio-political circumstances which threaten to undermine multiculturalism and social cohesion through the “lens” of young people.
By identifying young people’s views of multiculturalism and effective ways of engaging them around multicultural themes, the films suggest new strategies for social cohesion and inclusion. 
The films and the research associated with them will provide the community with insights into the evolving attitudes.
