"Children of War" to be screened at film festival.

 Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts  and the United Nations Association – Orange County Chapter (UNA-OC) co-host the first annual UNA-OC United Nations Day Film Festival this Sunday, Oct. 24 (United Nations Day) from 1-6 p.m. in the Folino Theater at Marion Knott Studios.

The theater will be only the second venue in the nation to screen the award-winning documentary Children of War, following the film’s official world premiere at the United Nations this fall.

The rest of the afternoon will be packed with other exciting, award-winning student and professional films, ranging in length from 16 to 75 minutes, plus a collection of cartoons created by animators around the world and provided by UNICEF.  All the films in this festival have children’s issues as their focus.
