THANK YOU for supporting our Lunafest Film Festival !

We hope at least one of the films touched your heart, raised insights and questions, gave you a new perspective, made you smile and/or made you think on issues you may not have thought about.  We hope to see you when we host our next Lunafest.  With your generous support we will be able to provide more monies to our local and global programs supporting women.  See you NEXT YEAR !!!
