In 2001, LUNAFEST® was launched as the very first traveling film festival featuring films by and about women.

Starting as one small California premiere 21 years ago, LUNAFEST has celebrated the work of more than 170 filmmakers in 2,700 screenings nationwide—both live and virtual. These important films bring fresh perspectives and connect communities.

LUNAFEST has also made an impact at the local level, helping to raise over $6.5 million for women’s causes while providing a platform for women and gender nonconforming storytellers.

LUNAFEST is committed to inspiring and advocating for change, because we want to Play A Part in something bigger. To play your part, you can attend a screening or host an event.
