Event Type Speaker
Come and explore the world of documentary films with the United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF), one of the oldest solely documentary film festivals in the US. Founder, Stanford educator and film critic Jasmina Bojic will discuss how films can be instrumental in changing hearts and minds, inspiring audiences to go out and find solutions to the world's most pressing problems.

Started as an off-shoot of the Mid-Peninsula chapter of Eleanor Roosevelt's United Nations Association, UNAFF screens films dealing with human rights, homelessness, racism, health, seniors, universal education, war, refugees and peace. UNAFF has recognized some of the most renowned documentaries of the past decade, including 5 Academy Award winners. Join us for an illuminating and provocative evening, including a viewing of a short film.
