LUNAFEST: Short Films, By, For, About Women; 12th Annual National Touring Film Festival Coming to Boone

Oct. 12, 2012. LUNAFEST®, the fundraising film festival dedicated to promoting awareness about women’s issues, highlighting women filmmakers and bringing women together in their communities, will be hosted by Earth Fare, Appalachian Women’s Fund and Girls on the Run of the High Country. Films will be shown at the Greenbriar Theater in the ASU Plemmons Student Union on Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m. and at the Harvest House Performing Arts Venue at 247 Boone Heights Drive on Nov. 3 at 6:30 p.m.

This 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, motherhood, body image, aging, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.

In addition to the films, there will a Q&A following the screening on ASU’s campus. Prior to the Nov. 3 screening, there will be a Women’s Info and Business Fair starting at 5:30 p.m. Also on Nov. 3, during the intermission of the films, there will be an auction of the winning pieces of artwork from Bra-Va!, a community competition to creatively and festively decorate a bra. All proceeds from Bra-Va! will be donated to the Breast Cancer Fund.

All proceeds from LUNAFEST will benefit Girls on the Run of the High Country, the Appalachian Women’s Fund and the Breast Cancer Fund. Thus far, LUNAFEST, which is created and funded by LUNA®, The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women®, raised more than $556,000 for Breast Cancer Fund and more than $1 million for other women’s non-profit organizations.
