LUNAFEST has been creating opportunities for women in film since 2000. In years past the talented women directors brought wonderful short stories from all over the world. This year will be no different. We have seven short films by women and about women that are timely, thought provoking, and inspiring for men and women.

How to access the films: Once you purchase your tickets, you will receive a confirmation email with all of the event details.  On June 25th, by 3pm day of the event, you will receive an email login to easily access the Pre-Zoom Party and link for the Vimeo live film screening.
