Tickets are available now for the seventh LUNAFEST® Film Festival, hosted by the Lewis County branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). This unique and thought-provoking film festival will be held on Saturday, April 29, from 1 – 3:30 p.m. at the Corbet Theater in Washington Hall on the campus of Centralia College. Viewing is also available online.
LUNAFEST® was created in 2001 as the world’s first all-women traveling film festival. For the past 22 years, LUNAFEST® has elevated the work of more than 175 filmmakers at 2,900 screenings, raising more than $7 million for nonprofits across the United States and Canada.
The 2023 season of LUNAFEST® features seven short films with a total running time of 95 minutes. Featured filmmakers are from all walks of life and range from poets to conservationists, activists, and educators. Their stories remind us that when we come together, we all move forward.
Tickets are $20 for either the in-person or online event and can be purchased online.
Tickets will also be available at the door on the day of the event. During the 1 to 2 p.m. social hour before the start of the films, attendees can get light refreshments and buy tickets to win a variety of wonderful raffle items. Lewis County AAUW members will also be on hand to provide information and encourage area women interested in joining the organization.
Proceeds from this event benefit Lewis County’s Hope Alliance, supporting survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, and Lewis County AAUW Women Supporting Women Scholarships.
For the 2023 season, LUNAFEST® is proud to amplify the inspiring short films by this year’s selection of women and gender nonconforming directors. Our featured filmmakers are from all walks of life and range from poets to conservationists and activists to educators. LUNAFEST® believes that sharing diverse stories can spark conversation, connection, and change. In a span of 95 minutes, these films tackle universal themes of friendship, bravery, and community — while also breaking down barriers and celebrating the importance of finding joy.
