UNAFF celebrates the power of documentaries that deal with human rights, environmental themes, women’s issues, protection of refugees, homelessness, racism, children, disease control, universal education, and war and peace.
UNAFF offers audiences a unique opportunity to view rarely screened documentaries, become familiar with global problems, and to acquire a better understanding of the means to address these problems. The Festival attracts a broad audience from the San Francisco Bay area; panels and audience exchanges often promote an interest in the issues presented, and have served as a call to action for many attendees. This year’s UNAFF theme is “Energy and the World.”
