By reaching girls while they are still young, we not only can help them stay healthy and safe in the short term, but we can reduce the number of women in crisis in the future.
Our organization exists to economically empower women to rise above their difficult circumstances and achieve their life goals. What we do is powerful and transformative.
In its first fifteen years, LUNAFEST received over 10,000 submissions, worked with 115 female directors, and had female directed films viewed by more than 300,000 people.
Although all girls face barriers because of their gender, we prioritize working with girls who have additional obstacles including poverty, unstable home lives, living in foster care, or teen motherhood. Soroptimist clubs work in partnership with girls in small groups or a conference setting to provide them with the information and resources they want and need to be successful.
We invest in women's education because it transforms lives and communities. The Live Your Dream Awards has been recognized for its effectiveness and long-term impact.
In 2000, LUNA started LUNAFEST® ,
a traveling film festival celebrating, showcasing and championing women in film.
LUNAFEST is making a mark in the industry by creating a platform for women’s untold stories and working to increase opportunity for women filmmakers.
