LUNAFEST®: Short Films By and About Women®

from American Association of University Women, Reading PA Branch

Feb 05, 2020

19th Annual Women’s Film Festival Coming to Reading

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 presented by the American Association of University Women, Reading PA Branch and hosted by Albright College’s Women and Gender Studies and the N.O.W. Student Chapter at Albright College’s Wachovia Theatre & Mezzanine, 13th & Bern Streets in Reading, PA on March 8.

This unique film festival highlights women as leaders in society, illustrated through seven short films by women filmmakers. The films range from animation to fictional drama, and cover topics such as women’s health, body image, relationships, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.

A special program about LUNAFEST will air on BCTV Wednesday, February 12 @ 7:30pm.

All proceeds from LUNAFEST will benefit American Association of University Women, Reading, PA Branch, and Chicken & Egg Pictures, a nonprofit organization that supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change.
