LUNAFEST – October 24, 2020

Films Made by Women for Women, about Women

Soroptimist International of Rio Vista sponsored the 5th annual LUNAFEST® October 24, 2020. It is the first time the festival has screened virtually.

What is LunaFest? LUNAFEST® has worked for two decades to equalize the filmmaking industry where women have been painfully underrepresented. In 2001, LunaBar sponsored the first all-women traveling film festival. Since then, LUNAFEST® and Chicken & Egg Pictures have opened the way for more than 150 women filmmakers, putting them in the spotlight.

This year’s films were as diverse as they come. Seven short films showcased the work of an array of talented women filmmakers with intelligent, funny, and thought-provoking themes.

Ticket price included a box of moviegoer treats including popcorn, candy and drinks for two.

The event also included a silent auction where participants bid on cool designer handbags, gift baskets and one-of-a-kind hand-crafted items perfect for the holidays.
