The LUNAFEST Mission To celebrate and inspire women through the art of film and community fundraising.
LUNAFEST is a national traveling film festival that features short films by, for and about women. LUNAFEST was established in 2000 by LUNA®, makers of the first nutrition bar for women to simultaneously promote women filmmakers, raise awareness for women’s issues, and support worthy women’s nonprofit organizations.
All proceeds from LUNAFEST are donated to nonprofit organizations. A screening fee of $350 goes to LUNA’s primary cause partner, Chicken & Egg Pictures, a nonprofit organization that supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change. 100% of net proceeds from each LUNAFEST event go to the host’s organization or the beneficiary of their choice.
LUNAFEST is designed so that one person can easily make a significant difference in the lives of women. Whether that person is a filmmaker who tells an untold story, a host who raises funds and awareness for a cause, or an attendee who leaves with a new perspective – each is a catalyst for change.
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 comprised of notables in the film industry.
LUNAFEST will screen at over 180 locations nationwide during its 19th season. LUNAFEST events have raised over 5.2 million dollars for women’s organizations, while raising awareness for women’s causes everywhere.
