You’re Invited – LUNAFEST Film Festival
Onsite or Online
Friday, May 12 · 6 p.m. or 8:30 p.m.
Join us in our theatre or online for a festival that celebrates women in the film industry, featuring 8 short films by and about women.
LUNAFEST celebrates a powerful and diverse set of women filmmakers. The festival has empowered and shared the work of more than 170 women filmmakers, giving them the opportunity to tell their stories and opening the door for filmmakers who might not otherwise be given the chance to show their art.
Stream the film from the comfort of your own couch or head on over to the Alliance for an intimate event at the Foulds Theatre. The event will feature gourmet snacks, refreshments, local businesses and nonprofits from our community and more.
