15th UNAFF Will be held from 18th-28th of October with the Theme Human Dignity

UNAFF, United Nations Association Film Festival, All Lights Film Magazine, ALFM, All Lihts  Magazine


United Nations Association Film Festival will be held from October 18th to 28th in San Francisco. The festival celebrates the power of documentary films dealing with human rights issues, the environment, racism, women’s issues, universal education and war and peace. This year’s festival theme is Human Dignity.

UNAFF was founded in 1998 by Jasmina Bojic, film critic and educator. It is an international documentary film festival originally established as a collaborative project between the UNA Mid Peninsula Chapter, a grassroots, community-based, nonprofit organization and the Stanford Film Society in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

In the past fifteen years, UNAFF has attracted a broad audience from the San Francisco Bay Area with regards to ethnicity—many finding the screenings to be a rare chance to see the state of human rights and culture in their own native countries.

Extending its role as a bridge between Stanford University and its community, UNAFF will again have the Opening Night at the historic Aquarius Theatre in downtown Palo Alto. UNAFF will be held for eleven days - five days in Palo Alto, one day in East Palo Alto and one day in San Francisco, in addition to four days of screenings on Stanford’s campus including the Cantor Museum. Also, by offering the very popular programs "UNAFF and Kids" and “UNAFF in Schools” and several panel discussions, we hope to broaden our audience and initiate a meaningful community dialogue, during which renowned experts will elucidate topics such as renewable energy, global warming, the impact of social media, immigration, population, children and nutrition and the passion for producing human rights documentaries.
