LUNAFEST 2019 – Short films By, For and about WOMEN

The American Association of University, Reading Branch, is hosting LUNAFEST® for its 2nd consecutive year! 

This exciting film festival will be held on Saturday, March 30, 2019, at Albright College, 13th and Bern St., Reading, PA. The Albright student chapter of N.O.W. is helping to host this unique inspirational film festival that features short films by, for, about Women®. These short films will make you think, laugh, cry, and above all, marvel at the talents of these amazing filmmakers. All of them are presented with the goal of raising awareness of, and funds for, women’s issues. The films range from animation to fictional drama, and cover topics such as women’s health, body image, relationships, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.

A free student screening for Albright students will be held at 4 pm. The community festivities kick off at 6 pm, with hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, wine reception; entertainment by a celebrated professional flute ensemble; displays; and more! The film screening begins at 7pm. Our post film discussion offers our audience members the opportunity to expand your movie experience beyond the screen in a fun environment, followed by dessert and drinks!

Advance purchase tickets will be available through Lunafest.org and Eventbrite.com, or through the local AAUW members up until 3/28/19 for $25, and, if still available, tickets can be purchased at the door for $30.  For additional information, call 610-777-0900.

Join us in celebrating and championing women storytellers during this month of Women’s History. Bring your friends and enjoy an evening of 8 delightful short films.

***Due to mature themes in some of the films, this event is recommended for viewers ages 16 and up.***
