LUNAFEST® returns to Dayton for the 9th year, bringing all new short films from around the world by, for and about women. This popular film series dedicated to promoting awareness about women’s issues and highlighting women filmmakers will be hosted by Dayton Women’s Rights Alliance at the Neon in Dayton on May 20.
This year’s 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, body image, relationships, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.
All proceeds from LUNAFEST will go to the Ohio Domestic Violence Network and Chicken & Egg Pictures, a nonprofit organization that supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change. Thus far, LUNAFEST, which is created and funded by LUNA®, The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women®, has raised more than $3 Million for nonprofit organizations across the US and Canada.
Tickets available for purchase – $10 general and $5 student tickets – at the Neon. 25 tickets also available online through Eventbrite. This is a one-time showing, and last year we sold out, –so you may want to purchase you ticket in advance.
