MUBI is proud to present the 2nd Dialogue of Culture International Film Festival (DCIFF), hosted globally online by MUBI. This free film festival will run online from November 1 – 14, 2013, and be available exclusively on MUBI.
The DCIFF is the world's first film festival dedicated to the worldwide phenomenon of people in search of their identity in the era of mass migration and globalization. Its goal is to jumpstart a dialogue between cultures through the universal language of cinema.
The festival program includes films from across the globe, giving voice to multiple perspectives on issues of culture and identity. To create a global dialogue and promote better understanding between cultures, the participating filmmakers, producers, and rights holders have agreed to show their films online for free. The DCIFF and MUBI are proud to bring these vital and necessary films to a global audience.
