LUNAFEST is completely funded by LUNA and run by a small, dedicated group of LUNA employees. 100 percent of all proceeds are donated to charity – 15 percent to the Breast Cancer Fund and the remaining 85 percent of proceeds go directly back to hosting community organizations.
Over the years, as LUNAFEST has grown from a single annual event to more than 100 festivals each season, LUNA’s commitment to this worthwhile program has grown as well. We are continually inspired by the individual and collective efforts of women – and we are awed by the results. To date, LUNAFEST has raised over $250,000 for worthwhile women’s organizations, while raising hope and awareness for the stories of women everywhere.

"The most infamous adult film of all time provides the basis for this hilarious musical comedy satire about Debbie Benton who is invited to audition for the “Texas Cowgirls” cheerleader squad, but her parents won't give her the money to go. So she and her friends decide to “get jobs” to raise the money. This send-up of 70's porn is smart & funny, racy & risque with music and lyrics to match! "

Concerned by the suggestion that modern people are visually oriented to the point of other-sensory atrophy, “Sense of Site” aims to explore and develop all five senses, particularly in relationship to our understanding of physical spaces.

(Ireland/UK/2007) Directed by Tom Collins
In the 1970s, six ambitious and energetic young men, some friends, some relatives, leave Ireland for London fired up with hopes of making their fortunes and their futures, and eventually returning home in triumph. Thirty years later, only one does return – in a coffin. As the five others reunite for his wake, they’re forced to face up to the realities of the past three decades; these men have not only not followed the path they originally set for themselves, they also now find themselves still struggling to find a center to their lives, as well as to discover a place to truly call home. Adapted from playwright Jimmy Murphy’s acclaimed The Kings of the Kilburn Road, this first major bilingual Irish production (Irish Gaelic and English) features remarkable performances from its brilliant ensemble cast, including the great Colm Meaney (The Snapper). An immigration story at once deeply personal and hauntingly universal, Kings is one of this year’s most powerful surprises. Toronto and Cannes Film Festivals. Gaelic sequences are subtitled. (88 min.)
