LUNAFEST comes to Prescott April 23

LUNAFEST, the fundraising film festival dedicated to promoting awareness about women’s issues that highlights female filmmakers, will be hosted by the Launch Pad Teen Center at The Raven Café, 142 N. Cortez St., on Sunday, April 23, at 6 p.m.

This unique film festival focuses on women as leaders in society, illustrated through nine short films. The films range from animation to fictional drama, and cover topics

such as women’s health, motherhood, body image, aging, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.

All proceeds from LUNAFEST will benefit the Breast Cancer Fund and the Launch Pad’s fourth annual Women’s Empowerment Breakthrough Conference.

Nationally, LUNAFEST, created and funded by LUNA, the Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, has raised over $965,000 for the Breast Cancer Fund and $2.6 million for other nonprofit organizations that benefit women.
