LUNAFEST- Film Festival - January 22, 2019

Zonta Club of Sanibel-Captiva announces the second annual LUNAFEST film festival to be held at the The Sanibel Community House at 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel on Tuesday, January 22, 2019.

LUNAFEST is a traveling film festival begun in 2000 by Kit Crawford, founder of LUNA nutritional bars, to highlight female filmmakers and to raise awareness about women’s issues and bring women together.

Lunafest is an important opportunity for the public to contribute to a more equitable society, noted Ms. Pati, last year's moderator.  “Statistics confirm females remain underrepresented in films as actresses, filmmakers, producers, etc., and the same can be said for most professions,” she said. “Join us for these thought provoking films and discussion on stereotypes, actions and reactions, and/or how we can contribute to a more equal world…or at least a more equal island.”

Tickets for LUNAFEST are $20 through Eventbrite and $25 at the door. Proceeds benefit the Zonta Foundation of Southwest Florida, which distributes grants to local organizations that empower women, and Chicken & Egg Pictures. The latter is a non-profit associated with LUNAFEST that supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose works bring about social change.

Tickets are available on line at Lunafest Sanibel $20 or $25 at the door.
