More About LUNAFEST
LUNAFEST is a national film festival that features short films by, for and about women. LUNAFEST was established in 2000 by LUNA®, Makers of the Whole Nutrition Bar for Women® to simultaneously promote women filmmakers, raise awareness for women’s issues and support worthy women’s nonprofit organizations. 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 impact.
