About the UNSPOKEN Conference and Film Festival
UNSPOKEN: Conference and International Human Rights Film Festival
October 13-15, 2011
Utica, New York
UNSPOKEN is an annual international human rights forum that combines film, art, music, and a conference into one festival. This year’s theme, “Many Cultures, One Community,” will explore the place of the arts and culture in the experience of people and peoples who have been forced from their homelands to build new lives and communities through resettlement. The conference will consider war-driven forced migration and human displacement, as well as domestic reception of refugees through resettlement and integration programs. Central to the conference conversation is the role of culture, heritage and the arts in processes of flight, migration, settlement and integration.
The film festival takes place during the annual conference. Some filmmakers participate in talks and discussions about their films.
