What is LUNAFEST? LUNAFEST is a collection of films by and about women. But it is not just a film festival – it is a force for change. For the past 20 years we’ve highlighted and celebrated a powerful and diverse set of women filmmakers and given their short films a national platform.
What is Zonta’s Virtual Event? Starting at 9 am on Saturday, November 13, you will have 48 hours to view seven short films made by and about women. Participants receive a link to view the movies anytime over the 48-hour period from the comfort of your couch. You can stop, go back, and repeat as many times as you wish.
Then, if you choose, join one of our discussion groups on Sunday, November 14, to share your impressions of these thought-provoking shorts. Three zoom sessions are scheduled for 11 am, 2 pm, and 6 pm Eastern Standard Time.
Where do the proceeds go? Proceeds support the Zonta Club of Pontiac N. Oakland Foundation, a 501 (c)3 organization. Locally, we fund agencies that help women - victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking; we provide “non-traditional” scholarships for women; we share in the work of providing re-usable menstrual kits for women and girls around the globe. Internationally, we are working to end child marriage, make education available to girls in developing nations, eliminate gender-based violence, and achieve gender equality.
How do I participate? Purchase your $25 ticket today. Before the event, you will receive your streaming links as well as the zoom invitation to the discussions.
In the meantime, invite your friends and family. Tell your neighbors. Share this link on your social media. Because our work is not yet done. Let’s flip the script on equality. Someday women will have an equal stage. Someday Is Now®.
