National touring film festival coming to Porterville
LUNAFEST, a fundraising film festival dedicated to promoting awareness about women’s issues, highlighting women filmmakers, and bringing women together in their communities, is coming to Porterville.
The festival is hosted by Zonta Club of Porterville, supported by PC’s Phi Theta Kappa, and slated for 6:30 p.m. Feb. 8 at Porterville College.
The unique film festival, now in its 11th year, consists of nine short films — ranging from animation to fictional drama, and covering topics such as women’s health, motherhood, body image, aging, cultural diversity and breaking barriers — highlighting women as leaders in society.
Seating is limited and pre-sale tickets are suggested.
LUNAFEST, created and funded by LUNA, a nutrition bar for women, has raised more than $456,000 for its breast cancer fund and more than $785,000 for other women’s non-profit organizations.
Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for students, and benefit the Breast Cancer Fund and Zonta Club of Porterville.
Doors open at 6 p.m., with the films beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Porterville College Theater at Porterville College, 100 E. College Ave.
