Soroptimist International of Tampa is very excited to host our third annual LUNAFEST® Tampa Film Festival, brought to you virtually on Saturday, October 17, 2020.
Soroptimist is a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment.
For almost 20 years, the LUNAFEST® national traveling film festival (created by LUNA® Bar) has provided opportunities for more than 152 women filmmakers to share their untold stories. In addition, each season this unique platform travels to close to 200 cities, helping to raise funds for local women’s causes, such as Soroptimist International of Tampa. Because equality can’t wait for someday. Someday is now.
Ticket price is $15. A streaming link and passcode will be sent to all attendees the morning of the event date. The link and passcode will be valid for 24 hours, starting at noon on October 17, so YOU get to choose when and with whom you would like to view the films.
100 % of proceeds go to Soroptimist Interenational of Tampa's two main programs: Live Your Dream and Dream It Be It.
Soroptimist's Live Your Dream Awards program is a unique education grant for women who provide the primary financial support for their families. Live Your Dream Awards give women the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.
Dream It, Be It: Career Support for Girls gives girls the tools they need to achieve their education and career goals, empowering them to break cycles of poverty, violence, and abuse. Although all girls face barriers because of their gender, we prioritize working with girls who have additional obstacles including poverty, unstable home lives, living in foster care, or teen motherhood. Soroptimist clubs work in partnership with girls in small groups or a conference setting to provide them with the information and resources they want and need to be successful.
