San Francisco Screenwriting Group Message Board › united nations association film festival
Will really appreciate if you could post this information on the meet up message board for the members
Founded in 1998, UNAFF is an international documentary film festival originally
established at Stanford University and Palo Alto to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Now celebrating its 16th Anniversary, UNAFF remains committed to providing an outlet for critical thinking and evaluation of issues around the globe. The theme for this year’s UNAFF is Individual to Universal and will be held from October 17-27, 2013. Detailed schedule is available at www.unaff.org
I would like to request your members to come and support this event. There are about 45 film makers visiting from all across the world and a total of 70 documentaries being showcased. It will be a great opportunity to meet the makers and get an in depth look at their work.
Documentaries often elicit a very personal, emotional response that encourages dialogue and action by humanizing global and local issues.
Looking forward to seeing all the members at the festival.
