Cultural Diversity Week is a time to come together as a community to celebrate our multicultural heritage and identity. This year, there is a range of great opportunities to get involved in the week and embrace Victoria’s diversity.
Host an event
They say there's no more powerful way to get to know someone than by sharing personal stories or experiences. Cultural Diversity Week invites Victorians to host an event, to create a conversation about belonging and to engage attendees.
Primary School Film Competition
The Primary School Film Competition calls on budding young filmmakers to show us what multiculturalism means to them. Pupils from Prep to Grade 6 are invited to produce a short film exploring the theme – ‘This is what a Victorian looks like’ in up to five minutes.
Submissions for the 2019 competition are now closed. See the winning films get announced and screened at a presentation ceremony during Victoria’s Multicultural Festival on Saturday 23 March at Fed Square.
VMC Film Festival
The Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC) Film Festival 2019 calls on Victorians, young and old, and filmmakers, emerging and established, to show us what multiculturalism means to their generation under the theme 'Making Diversity Great Again'.
Entries are now open until Sunday 14 April 2019, and shortlisted films will be screened at the VMC Film Festival at the newly renovated Capitol Theatre on 23 May 2019.
