LunaFest films celebrate the talents and stories of women and are filled with stories of reflection and whimsy, hope and humor, grace and perseverance. From quirky animation to touching documentaries, the 9 selected films are diverse in style and subject. All feature compelling storytelling. This year, one of the films features Georgena Terry, of Terry Precision Bicycling based in Burlington, VT.
"LunaFest provides an opportunity for women to share untold stories about issues they face around the world," says Tiffany Bluemle, Executive Director of VWW. "We're excited about bringing this program back for a second year and bringing the community together for a night of powerful short films while raising money and awareness for women's causes."
LunaFest screenings across the country raise funds and awareness for the Breast Cancer Fund and local women's nonprofit organizations like Vermont Works for Women. Eighty-five percent of the net profits come to VWW, while the remaining 15% go to Luna's national partner, the Breast Cancer Fund, an organization dedicated to identifying and advocating for the elimination of environmental causes of the disease.
