LUNAFEST, the fundraising film festival dedicated to championing women filmmakers and bringing women together in their communities, will be hosted by Camp Newaygo at Lang Lodge on February 7 at 7:00 p.m. The event is free to the public, with a suggested donation of $5 per person. Popcorn is also complimentary.
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.
Proceeds from this event support both Camp Newaygo’s core mission support and Chicken & Egg Pictures, which celebrates and champions women storytellers. This organization provides mentorship and critical financial support to female nonfiction filmmakers. Not only have the films gained recognition, they’ve made an impact on social and economic issues. Together, LUNAFEST and Chicken & Egg Pictures are creating a strong community for women in the film industry. LUNAFEST, which is created and funded by LUNA®, The Whole Nutrition Bar, has raised more than $5 million for nonprofit organizations across the US and Canada.
