LUNAFEST® believes sharing stories can change minds and influence culture.

Hosting a LUNAFEST event is a powerful way to make an impact in your community.

Whether you host live or virtually, you’ll amplify diverse voices, challenge perceptions, spark conversations, and raise funds for causes you care about.

We invite you to Play A Part in making the world a better place for all to shine!
