LUNAFEST Napa Valley is back with new films, new venue and a “new day on the horizon”! Lunafest 2018, a mini film festival that champions women film makers, is set to premiere in Napa Valley at Napa Valley College Performing Arts on April 20, 2018 at 6:45 p.m with 7:30 show time. Lunafest is a thought provoking traveling film festival that takes a look at women and girl lives through the lens of nine woman directors. At the new venue, seating is limited and the event is expected to sell out.
A pre-reception with wine and small bites will be offered from 6:45 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Local non-profits that help make a difference in the lives of girls and women will benefit from the proceeds raised at Lunafest. The local organizations that are this year’s recipients are Girls on the Run Napa & Solano, NEWS Domestic Violence & Sexual Abuse Services, and Soroptimist International of St. Helena Sunrise. Nationally, the Chicken & Egg Pictures, championing and celebrating women storytellers, is a beneficiary. A new chance to win lots of wine from local women wine makers or winery owners will be played.
This year’s films create a platform for women’s untold stories about hope, misperceptions, #metoo, reflection, breaking barriers, escaping captivity and dreams. Incredibly diverse in style and content, LUNAFEST is united by a common thread of exceptional storytelling - by, for and about women. In this year’s Oscar’s Greta Gerwig is the only women nominated for best director this year and the fifth ever.
