United Nations Association Film Festival UNAFF

We are delighted to announce the 27th UNAFF (United Nations Association Film Festival), which was founded in 1998 by Stanford educator and film critic Jasmina Bojic in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The 27th UNAFF will be held from October 17-27, 2024, in Palo Alto, East Palo Alto, San Francisco, and at Stanford University with the theme SHARED HUMANITY. It continues our dedication to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights with an emphasis on our common destiny and issues fostering it, or standing in its way.
As one of the oldest solely documentary film festivals in the US, UNAFF 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 later went on to win major awards and accolades, UNAFF prides itself in creating a community forum with year-round programs facilitating education and dialogue about different cultures, issues, and solutions.
Over the years UNAFF has screened some of the most acclaimed and talked-about documentaries in the industry, including eight that went on to win Academy Awards and thirty-six that were nominated.

The deadline for submissions is May 14, 2024.  For more information please visit
