HOW WE CHOOSE OUR FILMS

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? SURPRISE US.

Each year, LUNAFEST and its board of advisors receives and views more than 950 film submissions. How do we narrow it down to only nine or ten? Honestly, it’s tough. But we can tell you what we’re looking for: Exceptional storytelling. Creative delivery. Humor, honesty and heart. That intangible quality that delivers just a little “magic.” Most importantly, your film needs to capture the essence of our “by, for and about women” mission.

Looking for inspiration? Check out our LUNAFEST film archive to view work that made the grade in years past. From whimsical animation to hard-hitting documentaries and everything in-between, you’ll see that there are countless ways to make your unique story shine.
