Lights! Camera! Advocacy!
Become a champion of change and join us at this year's LUNAFEST® for the premiere of seven new films made by women, about women, giving a voice to women’s stories. Grab your tickets and popcorn and enjoy an at-home screening of these special films featuring strong women who are igniting change and pushing boundaries. Check out the festival trailer and information on the films.
Are you stuck at home due to Covid-19? Excited about movie award season? Interested in viewing short films made by women and supporting the work of female filmmakers? Looking for a fun way to support the FAWCO Target Project? If you answered, “yes” to any of these questions, join us for our virtual LUNAFEST screening in anticipation of the Oscars and in celebration of women in film.
FAUSA’s virtual screening will start on Friday, April 16 at 10:00 a.m., U.S. Central Time. Ticketholders will have from then until Sunday, April 18 at 10:00 a.m., U.S. Central Time to activate their ticket and 24 hours after activation to watch the films. (PLEASE NOTE THAT ONCE YOU START THE FILMS, YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO WATCH, REGARDLESS OF WHEN THIS OCCURS IN THE 48-HOUR PERIOD.) Our screening will also include a Q & A with three of the filmmakers after the films.
Ticketholders will also be invited to Zoom events on Sunday, April 18 at 10 a.m. U.S. Central time (5:00 pm CET) and 6 p.m. U.S. Central time for a virtual film discussion/pre-Oscar party. The calls are timed to accommodate ticket holders on both sides of the ocean.
These events will include a wine pairing with movie snacks by wine expert, Allison Burns, a recommendation for three French cheese and wine pairings from FAWCO Counselor and French cheese connoisseur, Sallie Chaballier, and suggested appetizer recipes from FAUSA Inspiring Woman, Nancy Thornley. These ideas are perfect for serving while viewing the films, attending the Zoom parties, watching the Academy Awards or celebrating another occasion.
All proceeds of the festival will benefit the FAWCO Target Project, S.A.F.E. (Safe Alternatives for Female Genital Mutilation), which works to end female genital mutilation (FGM) in Tanzania. Help us move FAUSA to the Aquamarine Donor Level on The FAWCO Foundation donor wall. Watch our progress on our LUNAFEST thermometer.
