Dear UNAFF Friends,

In these difficult times, we are grateful that we have you, our UNAFF community, and our shared passion for promoting human rights through documentary film.

Our filmmakers, who bring us all of these incredible documentaries, have been deeply affected by the current pandemic, and many are struggling financially. We have been receiving more requests than ever to pay online screening fees at the price of expending a major part of the festival budget.

Unfortunately, all of our other year-round programs have been greatly impacted by COVID-19 as well, from our “UNAFF for Seniors” weekly screenings in San Jose, Palo Alto, and Sunnyvale, to our “UNAFF in Libraries” program, which serves more than 20 libraries throughout Santa Clara County, to our programs for veterans, students, women, and kids.

As a non-profit organization, we, like so many others, are struggling to bridge this period of crisis, and we need your help to ensure that we will be able to continue our work.

What the future will look like after this pandemic is in your hands, and now is the time to ensure that it includes engaging and impactful festivals like UNAFF. Our theme this year, MOVING FORWARD, is more resonant than ever. We know that the documentary community is resilient and inventive, and we trust that with your support, we will overcome the current challenge.

Your tax-deductible donation is essential for us to continue with all these valuable programs for our community.
