Please join Girls on the Run NJ East in celebrating and showcasing women’s voices at LUNAFEST — a virtual film festival spotlighting short films by and about women. LUNAFEST offers our community an opportunity to witness and reflect on the vast diversity of women’s stories and perspectives.
This LUNAFEST line up has been exclusively curated for GOTR and includes four films: Knocking Down the Fences, Overexposed, Connection and Betye Saar: Taking Care of Business, plus a special interview with filmmaker Meg Shutzer and pro softball player and Gold Glove winner AJ Andrews from the film Knocking Down the Fences that will run after the films.
Starting at 6 pm EST on October 6th, 2021, we will kick off our inaugural LUNAFEST event. The films will be available to view for 4 days, through 11:59 PM EST on October 10th, 2021. You may also watch the event on your TV by using Apple TV, Fire TV Stick, or Roku.
Event is FREE to attend, and donations are welcome. All proceeds will benefit Girls on the Run NJ East, a non-profit with a mission to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum that creatively integrates running. Now, more than ever, our focus on developing girls' inner strength and resilience is critical.
