LUNAFEST: Short Films | by and about women.
LUNAFEST was the first all-women traveling film festival to hit the circuit and amplify the voices of strong women everywhere. The first event was a small yet hopeful screening in California. Today, there are screenings in more than 175 cities across the nation, showcasing the work of talented female directors.” LUNAFEST is making a mark in the industry by creating a platform for women’s untold stories and working to increase opportunity for women filmmakers. 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of LUNAFEST!
In order to support the City Council goal of building community through social and cultural events, the City of Brisbane will be hosting its third annual LUNAFEST screening on Saturday, September 25th, 2021 outdoors under the stars on the Brisbane Elementary School campus (500 San Bruno Avenue). This special screening also marks the 20th anniversary of LUNAFEST. Through a partnership with the Brisbane Lions Club, event proceeds will go towards scholarships for young women pursuing degrees in male-dominated fields. This year’s festivities will incorporate two screening options: an evening showing, and a virtual screening.
