LUNAFEST® is back for its 5th year! Soroptimist International of Rio Vista hosts an entertaining and enlightening afternoon at the movies! This amazing traveling film festival arrives in Rio Vista April 25, LUNAFEST® is hosted in approximately 200 cities worldwide with a mission of raising funds for local women’s causes. The 2020 LUNAFEST® showcases seven short inspirational films about women, by women, for women.

LUNAFEST® has been working for the last two decades at equalizing the film making industry, where women have been painfully under-represented. From the beginning, makers of the LUNA bar knew women had a role to play in shaping the future of the film industry, so in 2000, the first all women traveling film festival, LUNAFEST®, was born.

Since then, LUNAFEST® and Chicken & Egg Pictures have opened the doors of opportunity for more than 150 female filmmakers, putting them in the long-awaited and well-deserved spotlight. LUNAFEST® founder, Clif Bar owner and Co-CEO, Kit Crawford, insists they are “telling stories that have to be told.”

So far, LUNAFEST® festivals have raised over $4.1 million and 100% has gone to charity supporting women! The 2020 circuit boasts films that are as diverse as they come. Seven short films highlight the work of an array of talented female filmmakers with intelligent, funny and thought-provoking themes.
