Women Inspiring Strength and Empowerment presents …

LUNAFEST LUNAFEST, the fundraising film festival dedicated to promoting awareness about women's issues, highlighting women filmmakers, and bringing women together in their communities, will be hosted Sunday, April 14 by BU's WISE: Women Inspiring Strength and Empowerment in McCormick Center 1303. This unique film festival highlights women as leaders in society, illustrated through nine short films by women filmmakers. The films range from animation to fictional drama, and cover topics such as women’s health, motherhood, body image, aging, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.

All proceeds from LUNAFEST will benefit the Breast Cancer Fund, Columbia Montour Family Health, Inc. and WISE. Thus far, LUNAFEST, which is created and funded by LUNA, The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, raised over $556,000 for Breast Cancer Fund and over $1,000,000 for other women’s non-profit organizations.

Three short films will be shown. The first showing is 3 to 4:30 p.m. The second showing is 5:30 to 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served between showings so, stay after to mingle and discuss the films or come early for refreshments and stay for the second showing. There is a charge of $5 at the door to benefit the Breast Cancer Fund, Columbia Montour Family Health, Inc. and WISE.
