I am sharing something near and dear to me. The 2020 LUNAFEST Film Festival is coming soon – hopefully to your streaming device! I first had the opportunity to view these films about four years ago when my Soroptimist Club sponsored an event. I was so impressed, and it hit home as our daughter Rachel was a budding filmmaker when she lived in Seattle.
Almost two decades ago, the Clif Bar company saw that women were painfully underrepresented in film. In 2001, they created the first all-women traveling film festival. The first event was a small but hopeful screening in California. Since then, they’ve opened opportunities for more than 150 women filmmakers, putting them in the spotlight. Lots more info at www.lunafest.org.
Soroptimist International of Simi Valley is sponsoring a LUNAFEST Film festival showing, virtually of course. It will be available to view anytime during the 24 hour period from 4:00 pm November 7th - 4:00 pm November 8th from your home or anywhere you happen to be on that date.
By purchasing a $20 ticket, you support women filmmakers and our local Soroptimist Club. We are part of a global volunteer organization that provides women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment. And, if you need another reason to support, do it as a birthday present for me…I will be celebrating a milestone birthday on Election Day!

If you live locally (Simi/TO/SF Valley), you can upgrade your LUNAFEST experience with a Party Pack! This Gift Bag has everything you need to enjoy the festival on the couch! Each bag is loaded with candy, snacks, popcorn, a little bubbly (sparkling cider), extra surprises and a LUNAFEST Simi Valley 2020 Program. Party pack pickup/delivery instructions will be emailed to you after purchase. This little gift of fun is all you need for a complete LUNAFEST experience.
See you at the movies! Thank you!
