Lunafest Tucson films


    “It’s time for LUNAFEST!

    Join WOSAC & GWS as we host our 13th annual LUNAFEST on March 13th at The Loft Cinema.

    LUNAFEST is an evening of short films made by, for, and about women. Films cover a wide range of topics, including body image, breaking barriers, family relationships, cultural diversity, women’s health, and social justice. You can see this year’s amazing lineup here:

    If you’re a film maker – amateur or otherwise – we’d love to have your entry in our local film contest! The winning film will be shown at the start of the event to the (hopefully) SOLD OUT crowd. Entry details here:

    We’ll also have our signature raffle, with exciting prizes like jewelry, certificates for fine dining and spa services, and our traditional grand prize – a stunning, hand-crafted, custom-designed for this event, hanging quilt made by local fabric artist, Maria Barr.

    And, best of all, all proceeds from LUNAFEST benefit WOSAC and Chicken & Egg Pictures, which supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change.

    Tickets are $12 in advance; $15 at the door.
    NOW AVAILABLE online!

    Invite your friends! It is a wonderful evening out for two wonderful causes.
