LUNAFEST, the fundraising film festival dedicated to promoting awareness about women’s issues, highlighting women filmmakers and bringing women together in their communities, will be hosted by Delta Omega, a student organization at the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (WVSOM).
The event will begin at 7 p.m., Sunday, Mar. 1, at the Lewis Theater in Lewisburg. The film festival highlights women as leaders in society, illustrated through eight short films by women filmmakers. The films range from animation to fictional drama, and cover topics such as women’s health, motherhood, body image, aging, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.
All proceeds from LUNAFEST will benefit the Breast Cancer Fund and the Family Refuge Center. So far, LUNAFEST has raised more than $757,000 for the Breast Cancer Fund and more than $1.7 million for other women’s nonprofit organizations. Tickets are $5 for general admission at the door.
