For the past 21 years, LUNAFEST has celebrated a powerful and diverse set of women filmmakers and given their short films a national platform. The first event was a small but hopeful screening in California. Since then, LUNAFEST has celebrated and shared the work of more than 170 women filmmakers, raising over $6.5 million for local women’s causes. Now this unique platform is showcased at over 200 events each season creating impact through dollars raised and awareness built toward some of the most pressing issues facing society today.
In order to support the City Council goal of building community through social and cultural events, the City of Brisbane will be hosting its fourth annual LUNAFEST screening at the Mission Blue Center on June 11th, 2022. Through a partnership with the Brisbane Lions Club, event proceeds will go towards scholarships for young women pursuing degrees in male-dominated fields.
A limited number of VIP tickets will be available for $60/person. VIP tickets include an exclusive pre-party from 5:00-6:30pm with complimentary hors d'oeuvres, commemorative glassware, and drink ticket. VIP attendees will also have an opportunity to select their priority seating for the show.
General admission tickets will be available for $20/person until capacity is reached. Doors to general admission attendees will open at 6:30pm, and the screening will begin promptly at 7:00pm. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages as well as concessions will be available for purchase with all proceeds being donated to the Lions Club scholarship fund. Advance ticket purchasing is strongly encouraged.
For those who want to support the event but wish to do so virtually, we will have the option to purchase a virtual screening ticket. Tickets are $20 and you’ll be able to screen the films from the comfort of your own home. Virtual attendees will be sent a 48-hour live access link and instructions prior.
We invite you to share in this exciting screening of LUNAFEST in the City of Brisbane and make a difference in our community. *Suggested age, 13 & up.
