LUNAFEST, a national festival of women’s films, comes to Dayton for the 8th time. This season’s program of nine selected films will compel discussion, make you laugh, tug at your heartstrings and motivate you to make a difference in your community. Incredibly diverse in style and content, the films are united by a common thread of exceptional storytelling – by, for and about women This year’s program of thought-provoking stories include a teenage girl in a Syrian refugee camp, a senior women’s synchronized swim team, and reflections on the definition of family and community.
Two additional short films will be presented by Pens to Pictures, a local filmmaking collaborative that worked with incarcerated women at the Dayton Correctional Institute to help them make their own short films, from script to screen. http://
