LUNAFEST Steamboat Springs 2020
- Virtual Event -- Access Info Below
Hosted by the Bud Werner Memorial Library, this nationally touring 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. These stories of reflection, hope and humor will compel discussion, make you laugh, tug at your heartstrings and motivate you to make a difference in your community. Films featured in LUNAFEST are not rated but we suggest age 13+ for this season's lineup.
This year, a virtual LUNAFEST is free for the Yampa Valley community, courtesy of the Library.
The LUNAFEST film festival is dedicated to promoting awareness about women's issues, highlighting women filmmakers, and bringing women together in their communities. LUNAFEST supports Chicken & Egg Pictures, a nonprofit organization that supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change. Thus far, LUNAFEST, which is created and funded by LUNA®, The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women®, has raised more than $3 Million for nonprofit organizations across the US and Canada.
LUNAFEST was the first all-women traveling film festival to hit the screens and amplify the voices of strong women everywhere. The first event was small, but hopeful, screening in California. Today, there are screenings in more than 175 cities across the nation where the work of talented women filmmakers are showcased. Kit Crawford, CLIF & Co Chief Visionary Officer, and LUNA Bar founder, has always been a champion behind the festival, who insists on “telling stories that have to be told.” There are 2.13 male short-film directors for every 1 female director. 2.13 male voices to every 1 female heard. 2.13 male stories to every 1 not yet told.
