UNAFF Traveling Film Festival Chicago and
Columbia College Chicago        

Children - What Hope for Tomorrow?
A one-day festival of films on children's rights, presented by the United Nations Association Traveling Film Festival Chicago and the Documentary Department of Columbia College Chicago.

Children everywhere represent the best hope for the future, but increasingly they are victims of events and decisions beyond their control. On every continent the personal potential and rights of young people are being eroded - through exploitation, abuse and neglect, and as victims of war, preventable disease and social injustice. The Documentary Department of Columbia College and the United Nations Association Greater Chicago Chapter are joining forces to present a day of exceptional and rarely seen films on the Rights of Children.

The films have been selected as part of the United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) - an independent project of the not-for-profit United Nations Association. 


November 19, 2005 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (schedule below)

1104 S. Wabash Ave., 8th floor

Free for Columbia students; all others $10 suggested donation per half-day session
