Our community should value and appreciate the efforts of UNAFF, festival founder Jasmina Bojic, her staff and volunteers. For 15 years, they have brought sensitive, thought-provoking, social and cultural issues to the fore via cinema. With Human Dignity as its theme, and most events free for students and seniors, people should be breaking down the doors to see films, meet film-makers, attend panels. GO!! Even better, donate and volunteer!! Web Link
