Welcome to the 2023 LUNAFEST® lineup, a program of short films that empower and inspire. LUNAFEST believes that sharing diverse perspectives can spark conversation, connection, and change. This year’s stories are told from a variety of perspectives that champion women and gender nonconforming individuals, highlighting their aspirations, accomplishments, resilience, and strength.
The 2023 season of LUNAFEST® features seven short films with a total running time of 95 minutes.
We’re proud to amplify the inspiring short films by this year’s selection of women and gender nonconforming directors. Our featured filmmakers are from all walks of life and range from poets to conservationists, activists, and educators. These stories remind us that when we come together, we all move forward.
This year's event once again supports WomenCARE, A safe haven where women with any type of cancer find mutual support, shared experiences, and open hearts.
