Tampa LUNAFEST Film Festival 2019

On Saturday, September 14, Soroptimist International of Tampa (SI Tampa) presented LUNAFEST®, a fundraising film festival featuring eight short films made by, for and about women. This is the second year SI Tampa partnered with LUNA®, makers of the Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, to bring the traveling short film festival to Tampa.  The LUNAFEST® Fundraising Film Festival event was held at The Portico Café, 1001 N Florida Ave, Tampa, FL 33602. 

Kit Crawford, Clif Bar Owner & Co Chief Visionary Officer stated “It’s about giving women the opportunity to tell their stories and opening the door for filmmakers who might not otherwise be given the chance to show their art.” Founded in 2000, LUNAFEST® was the first all-women travelling film festival.  Today, there are screenings in more than 175 cities across the nation where the works of talented women filmmakers are showcased.

Proceeds from the event will support SI Tampa’s mission and programs, including multiple annual scholarships for women and career seminars / mentoring programs for girls.
