LUNAFEST – Films By Women, For Women – To Benefit Family Service League & SAVE of Essex County

Save the date – March 7 is LUNAFEST and the annual festival of movies for women, by women takes place virtually as a fundraiser for Family Service League & SAVE of Essex County. Take in the 90-minute festival and see all of the films for $15.

A Force For Change in the Film Industry

To date, LUNAFEST has raised more than $6 million for nonprofit organizations, featured 170 women filmmakers, and hosted over 2,500 screenings across North America.

All proceeds from LUNAFEST benefit FSL & SAVE of Essex County NJ and Chicken & Egg Pictures, a nonprofit organization that supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change.

LUNA® Bar has been fighting for change for 20 years. The brand has always committed to inspiring women, championing change, and demanding that equality be a right, not an option. These values fueled LUNA to create LUNAFEST, the first all-women traveling film festival, now in its 20th season and screening virtually in 2021.

“Now more than ever, we’re seeing the importance of shining the light on women in film as well as continuing to support community organizations and connecting in new ways,” says Suzy Starke German, Program Director. In response to the impact of COVID-19 on live events, LUNAFEST has pivoted to a virtual format where guests can stream the film program all from the comfort and safety of their homes.

This year, LUNAFEST features an all-documentary lineup of seven short films by women filmmakers, sharing new perspectives and lighting a fire in the industry. And for the first time, LUNA has joined forces with Chicken & Egg Pictures to coproduce three of this season’s films. Together, LUNA and Chicken & Egg Pictures are creating a strong community for women in the film industry.
