Traveling Film Festival

Conceived in 1968 at Stanford University by film critic and educator Jasmina Bojic in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) screens documentaries by international filmmakers dealing with topics such as human rights, environmental themes, women’s issues, children, refugee protection, homelessness, racism, disease control, universal education, war and peace. By bringing together filmmakers, the academic community, and the general public, UNAFF offers a unique opportunity for creative exchange and education among groups and individuals often separated by geography, ethnicity, and economic constraints. For more details, please visit www.unaff.org. Many of UNAFF’s selections have gone on to win Oscars and other major awards and accolades.
This will be its 11th Traveling Film Festival, and the ninth time that the Arts Arena hosts it.
Films will be screened during the afternoon and evening of Sunday, May 6 and the evening of Monday, May 7 in the presence of UNAFF founder and Executive Director Jasmina Bojic.
Titles and descriptions of the films and screening times will be announced closer to the date.
