    Event Details

    The award-winning UNAFF held annually in October has grown to be one of the oldest and most respected documentary film festivals in the United States. It leverages the inherent appeal of visual information and utilizes the medium of documentary film as educational tool about a number of topics – media, war, gender issues, diversity, racism, immigration, Native American issues, LGBTQ+, health and social inequities. UNAFF was originally conceived to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It was founded by Stanford educator and film critic Jasmina Bojic. In addition to providing early outlets for films, many of which have gone on to win major awards and accolades, UNAFF takes pride in creating a community forum for discovery and dialogue about different cultures, social issues and solutions.

    This year’s theme MOVING FORWARD continues the UNAFF two-decade-long celebration of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, emphasizing our readiness to resume resolute strides towards lasting solutions.
