Now in its 13th year, LUNAFEST is an organization that connects women, their stories, and their passions through film. Sponsored by LUNA, this traveling festival showcases a varied group of talented female filmmakers whose work is poignant, smart, and thought provoking, all for a good cause.

Created for women, by women, LUNAFEST not only champions women filmmakers and audiences, but also raises awareness and funds for organizations that profit and empower all of womankind. Tonight’s event at Tribeca Cinemas will benefit two very important institutions: Breast Cancer Fund and The New York Women’s Foundation.

Beginning at 6PM, tonight’s LUNAFEST program will include nine short films from nine accomplished female filmmakers. The wide ranging stories include a chemotherapy patient who uses her bald head as a blank canvas for self-expression, a mother and daughter dreaming of a better life, and a girl getting the news that her boyfriend is breaking up with her from his 14 year old brother. These diverse films will provide motivation, to all women and inspire laughter and discussion.

Our friends at Tribeca Cinemas are giving away five pairs of tickets to tonight’s festivities. Just email cinemas@tribecacinemas.com by 2PM for your chance to be one of the lucky winners.
