Status: No Registration Required
Founded in 1998 by Jasmina Bojic, a film critic and educator, UNAFF is an international documentary film festival originally established to honor the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It has grown and earned the respect of audiences and filmmakers alike for its fearless independence and integrity. In addition to providing early outlets for many films that later went on to win major awards and accolades, UNAFF prides itself on creating a community forum for discovery and dialogue about different cultures, social issues, and solutions. As one of the oldest documentary-only film festivals in the United States, UNAFF brings together the interests of human rights advancement and cinematic achievement. The 21st UNAFF will be held for eleven days—four days in Palo Alto, one day in East Palo Alto, two days in San Francisco, and four days on Stanford’s campus. Also, UNAFF will spotlight current events around the globe, including its very popular programs “UNAFF and Kids” and “UNAFF in Schools,” and will host eight panel discussions during which renowned experts will elucidate topics such as climate change, the impact of social media and arts, guns in our schools, gender equality, hate crime and LGBT issues, philanthropy and social change, and the passion for producing human rights documentaries.
