LUNAFEST film festival at UK this weekend

If you’re interested in learning about female filmmakers and environmental education, then LUNAFEST is where you should be this weekend.

The Kentucky Environmental Foundation, with the help of several sponsors including the Kentucky Humanities Council, is hosting the event at 7 p.m. Friday, April 24 at the Center Theater on the University of Kentucky campus. According to its Web site (click here), LUNAFEST was established in 2000 by LUNA, the makers of the Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, to simultaneously promote women filmmakers, raise awareness for women’s issues and support women’s nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and Canada.

Proceeds raised from ticket sales — $15, and $5 for students — will help the Kentucky Environmental Foundation further its mission of educating youth and adults about the environment. Fifteen percent of funds raised go to the Breast Cancer Fund.

A similar event was hosted April 18 at Berea College. Read The Richmond Register’s feature of the event here.
