What is Lunafest?
Lunafest is a unique traveling film festival that features short films created by, for and about women. It was established in the year 2000 by Luna, Makers of the Whole Nutrition Bar for Women. Their goal was to promote women filmmakers, to raise awareness for women’s issues and to support worthy women’s nonprofit organizations.
The Lunafest films range from animation to fictional drama and cover topics relating to women’s health, motherhood, body image, relationships, cultural diversity, breaking barriers and more. The films are selected by an outside board of advisors made up of notables in the film industry.
Each year, organizations such as Soroptimist International (SI) of London act as hosts to the Lunafest Film Festival at over 180 locations in North America. All proceeds from Lunafest are donated to nonprofit organizations. The screening fee paid to Luna by SI London will be donated to “Chicken & Egg Pictures”, a nonprofit organization that supports women nonprofit filmmakers. The net proceeds from our Lunafest event at King’s College will be used to fund the signature programs of SI London, our Live Your Dream Educational Award and our Dream It Be It Mentoring program and also provide financial aid to organizations within our community.
Lunafest is uniquely designed so that one person can make a significant difference in the lives of women. Whether that person is a filmmaker who tells an untold story, a host organization who raises funds and awareness for a cause or an attendee who leaves with a new perspective - each is a catalyst for change.
Come to Lunafest. Experience the change.
