Art/Film – By, For and About Women!

I love the idea behind LUNAFEST, a traveling film festival of award-winning short films that are by, for and about women. lunafest1

The one in Palm Springs just ended with a series of six films filled with stories of reflection, hope and humour and held at the Camelot theatre. I’m really sorry to have missed it but I was heading back to Vancouver.  The $15 tickets included a petit dejeuner of coffee, pastries and Luna bars since the fest was established by them in 2000. Thought you’d like to know about it since it will travel to over 175 cities and be screened in front of 25,000 people, mostly women I’m certain and hopefully teenage girls as well.

Celebrating Women at LunaFest not only connects women through film but raises funds for local non profits and their main beneficiary – Breast Cancer Fund.

The inspirational nationwide festival accepts short films, 20 minutes or less, in a variety of genres and subjects ranging from transgender issues and body image to motherhood, aging and cultural barriers and breakthroughs.

 Finally a film fest that’s fun, enlightening and benefits a good cause. Spread the word!

You’re a real treat with a super sense of humour.  Yes, didn’t you know that some dogs have humour?  it’s true.

Jack should start a short film festival By, For and About DOGS lasting no more than 2 minutes each.

DogFest anyone?

 Refreshments will include HotDogs

Hmmmmm……

titles to consider:

The Dogfather, Dogs Gone Wild, No Country for Old Dogs, Dog Day Afternoon (oh; it’s taken), Dog Day All Day, Crazy Canines, etc.     Doggonnit we’re good!
