United Nations Association Film Festival (25th Anniversary – Reflections)
October 20 @ 5:30 pm - October 30 @ 10:30 pm EDT
Founded in 1998 by Jasmina Bojic, 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 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.
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 25th UNAFF will be held for eleven days: October 20-30, 2022.
UNAFF 2022 will present 60 documentaries spotlighting current events from across the globe, including through its very popular programs UNAFF & Kids and UNAFF In Schools, and will host six panel discussions during which renowned experts will discuss topics such as climate change, threat of epidemics, mental health, racism and hate, criminal justice reform, immigration, homelessness, creativity and disability, the future of borders and military spending and the power of art to transform consciousness and inspire social change. Over the past 25 years, UNAFF juries have selected: 34 documentaries which received Oscar nominations, and 8 documentaries which won Academy Awards.
