LunaFest Palm Springs

Established in 2000 by LUNA, the makers of the Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, LunaFest connects women, their stories and their causes through film. This traveling film festival spotlights the work of a diverse array of talented women filmmakers with intelligent, funny and thought-provoking themes. 

Soroptimist International of Palm Springs has been hosting an annual LunaFest event since 2012. As an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of girls and women, a film festival made by, for, and about women was a perfect fit!

Our first year at our new location, Richards Center for the Arts at Palm Springs High School, proved to be our biggest and best event to date!! 

With close to 600 in attendance, our annual fundraiser turned out to be a smashing success!! 

The morning started with complimentary fresh coffee provided by Ristretto and pastries provide by Aspen Mills. In attendance was Dee Dee Wilson Barton from Barton CPA, our Diamond Sponsor through 2020. 

We also had a special guest speaker, Joey Ally, Director of Joy Joy Nails, one of the short films included in this year's lineup. Joey told us about her start in film making and what it's like to be a woman in the film making industry, as well as answered audience questions.
