The 11th annual United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) will be held from October 19 to October 26. By opening the Festival in a new downtown Palo Alto venue, festival organizers hope to broaden their audience and initiate a meaningful community dialogue. To facilitate this dialogue, this year, in addition to screening films, UNAFF offers four panel discussions in collaboration with Stanford’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, the Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts, and Stanford’s Ward W. and Priscilla B. Woods Institute for the Environment, during which renowned experts will elucidate topics such as global warming, the impact of oil, children and nutrition, and education issues in China. Admission for all four panels is free and festival urges you to take these great opportunities to participate and see how you can continue your involvement beyond the film screenings.
