LUNAFEST Film Festival, featuring films by, for and about women, is returning on March 9th and 10th at the Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River. Doors will open at 6 pm and screening begins at 7 pm.
The traveling film festival spotlights the work of talented women filmmakers with intelligent, funny and thought-provoking films. One of the six films profiles a woman who defies Fidel Castro’s ban on female boxing to follow her dreams of Olympic glory. Another features a tired mother who loses her car in a shopping mall. This year’s directors hail from Los Angeles, London, Oakland, Helsinki and Paris.
Profits from the screening go to the Breast Cancer Fund and SIHR’s Live Your Dream Awards program, education awards for women who are head of household.
