8th UNHCR Refugee Film Festival

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) provides assistance and protection to the world’s refugees. According to the UNHCR, more than “45 million people have been forcibly displaced outside or inside their own country around the world.” One person gets forcibly displaced every 4 seconds. With the escalating violence in Syria these days the refugee situation is only getting worse.

Each year, UNHCR sponsors a film festival that features refugee crises from a wide variety of perspectives, sometimes through documentaries and sometimes in the form of drama. This year’s festival will be held from Sept. 28th – October 6th. Some of the screenings will be held right here at Aoyama Gakuin University!
