Our efforts also include the UNAFF Extension Program, which is a "travelling festival" sponsored by local UNA chapters. Several chapters have already expressed an interest in showing UNAFF films through the "UNAFF Extension Program" and we plan to start working with them at the end of the year. It is our hope that all 175 chapters will eventually participate.
UNAFF is an independent project of the Midpeninsula Chapter of the UNA-USA, a non-profit organization. We welcome your support, financial or otherwise in helping us put together the festival that promotes documentary filmmaking as a tool for social and political understanding, and which facilitates community participation in effecting international change.
