LUNA has always believed in the power of women. From the beginning, they knew women had a role to play in shaping the future of the film industry so in 2000, LUNAFEST was born. LUNAFEST was the first all-women travelling film festival to hit the screens and amplify the voices of strong women everywhere. The first event was a small, but hopeful, screening in California. Today, there are screenings in more than 175 cities across the nation where the work of talented women filmmakers are showcased, and Soroptimists are proud to bring this film series back to the Gorge again this year.
All proceeds benefit Soroptimist International of Hood River’s cornerstone program—the Live Your Dream Awards with financial awards given directly to local women working to better themselves and their families’ lives. Thus far, LUNAFEST, which is created and funded by LUNA The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, has raised over $965,000 for Breast Cancer Fund and over $2,600,000 for other women’s non-profit organizations.
