LUNAFEST Brings Tucson Short Films By Women, For Women

Posted By on Mon, Mar 7, 2016 at 12:00 PM

The Women's Studies Advisory Council will screen six films about, for and by women, at the Loft Cinema (3233 E. Speedway Blvd.) in their 15th annual LUNAFEST tour on Tuesday, March 8. 

The festival aims to illuminate women's issues, nationally unite women and highlight female filmmakers through a variety of film mediums ranging from animated shorts to fictional dramas. Topics explored include motherhood, body image, cultural diversity and breaking gender barriers. 

Created and funded by LUNA (yes, LUNA as in the nutrition bar), LUNAFEST benefits Tucson's Breast Cancer Fund and the UA's Women's Studies Advisory Council. The event will also collect money and non-perishable food or feminine hygiene products for the Adult and Youth Programs of the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation as part of the YWCA Southern Arizona. Donors will get one voucher for buy-one-get-one free raffle tickets. 

Featured LUNAFEST films include the following:  Screenings start at 7 p.m. and run until 9:30. Get tickets for $10 at the door or call 621-5656 to buy them in advance. Check out LUNAFEST's website for more information.
