Jasmina Bojić

Jasmina Bojic was born and raised in the former Yugoslavia. She attended law school in that country and soon thereafter became a well-known radio and television reporter.

At Stanford, Jasmina teaches documentary filmmaking with a focus on human rights issues. To that end, ten years ago, in 1997, she created the United Nations Association Film Festival. This Festival is an all-volunteer effort by Jasmina, its founder and executive director, and the student members of the Stanford Film Society. . For this year’s Festival, 365 films were submitted from all seven continents. Of that number, 32 films will be shown with screenings at Stanford and in East Palo Alto and San Francisco. Kudos to Jasmina Bojic for bringing international filmmakers, the academic community, and the general public together to raise awareness about human rights issues. She is truly a Community Treasure.
