Join us for our 13th Annual LUNAFEST fundraising event. LUNAFEST is the only film festival in North America to celebrate the power of storytelling by combining women filmmakers and community fundraising campaigns to support local nonprofits.
For 21 years, LUNAFEST has been creating opportunities for women in film. In years past the talented women directors brought wonderful short stories from all over the world. This year will be no different. We have eight short films by women and about women that are timely, thought provoking, and inspiring for men and women.
Once you purchase your tickets, you will receive a confirmation email with the event details including location directions for in-person viewing and login access codes for online viewing.

HOW TO BE AT HOME
BY ANDREA DORFMAN

CLOSE TIES TO THE HOME COUNTRY
BY AKANKSHA CRUCZYNSKI

GENERATION IMPACT: THE CODER
BY SAMANTHA KNOWLES
A 13-year-old girl designs and builds a mobile app to help kids stay connected to their incarcerated parents by sending photos and letters.
PROOF OF LOSS
BY KATHERINE FISHER
When a fire takes their home, a father and daughter must find a way to salvage what remains: each other.
WHEN YOU CLEAN A STRANGER'S HOME
BY SHARON ARTEAGA
A first-generation high school student describes what she and her mom learn about people when cleaning their homes.
BETWEEN THE LINES: LIZ AT LARGE
BY ABI COLE
Frustrated with the lack of character diversity in The New Yorker’s cartoons, an artist submits her own illustrations, becoming the first Black woman cartoonist in the magazine’s near-century run.
BY EMILY MCALLISTER
A Bronx woman’s accidental social experiment connects her with fellow New Yorkers who might otherwise forever remain strangers.
TO THE FUTURE, WITH LOVE
BY SHALEECE HAAS & HUNTER “PIXEL” JIMENEZ

Live music at LUNAFEST
Ghosts of Liberty open LUNAFEST at 7:30
Americana folk-rock act based in the foothills of North Carolina, The Ghosts of Liberty comprises husband & wife duo Emma Lee Millard and Tyler Millard.
They bring together their combined influences of roots, blues, rock and soul, delivering a truly original package that could only be born of two people living and working under the same roof.
Tyler discovered his passion for playing and writing music while losing his vision to RP, a degenerative retinal disease- and Emma comes from a background in multi-genre vocal performance, beginning with classical training at an early age. Ty’s steady and cool nature balances Em’s gutsy emotionality, and together they are a musical force.
