LUNAFEST® Short Film Festival, Thursday, March 22 Films by Women
LUNAFEST® is a distinctive touring film festival that honors the talents
and stories of women everywhere through a series of short films. This 90-minute program of films is shown in more than 150 venues throughout the U.S. and Canada.
All proceeds from LUNAFEST are donated to charity, and 85 percent of the evening’s profits will help fund an FAU scholarship for a female student on the Jupiter campus.
The remaining 15 percent will go to LUNA’s primary cause partner, the Breast Cancer Fund, an organization dedicated to identifying and advocating for the elimination of
environmental causes of the disease.
Over the last 10 years, LUNAFEST has grown to more than 150 events a year and raised over $1.2 million for worthwhile women’s organizations, while raising hope
and awareness for women everywhere. The LUNAFEST films range from animation to fictional drama, and cover topics such as women’s health, motherhood, body image,
relationships, cultural diversity and breaking barriers. The films are selected by an outside board of advisors comprised of notable filmmakers and industry leaders.
This season’s program of nine films will compel discussion, make you laugh, tug at your heartstrings and motivate you to make a difference in your community.
Incredibly diverse in style and content, LUNAFEST films are united by a common thread of exceptional storytelling.
