(Boston) — The Boston University College of Communication will celebrate its talented faculty and student filmmakers at the Fourth Annual United Nations Association Traveling Film Festival (UNATFF) on Sept. 24 and 25.
The festival also presents films from talented filmmakers all over the world, who submit their view of problems and issues in their countries and communities. One of the main goals of the UNATFF is to reach as many community members as possible and spread awareness about global issues through the medium of high quality documentary films.
This year’s festival includes 17 rarely screened international and U.S. documentaries. The theme “Faces of Hope and Courage: Connecting with Humanity” is all encompassing of the range of topics being addressed: dehumanization, environment, forgiveness, freedom, health, hope, human rights, justice, non-violent resistance, media, peace, self-discovery, terrorism, and women’s rights.
The festival is presented by United Nations Association of Greater Boston, the Harvard Kennedy School of Government Alumni Association, in cooperation with BU’s College of Communication, a BU Student organization (Pugwash), and the Stanford Club of New England.
The film festival is open to the public and all students are welcome. For more information visit the website at http://www.bostonfilms.org or contact the Department of Film and Television at 617-353-3483 or email@example.com.
