In a historic moment where we’re reckoning with the film industry’s history of discrimination, it’s more important than ever that films like these that hold up the stories of women and people of color are made and shown widely. Thanks to #MeToo and #TimesUp, there’s a push for equity in film that echoes our need for equity in all aspects of our lives.
As a nonprofit organization committed to equity, these films are an important part of achieving our vision to Make Minnesota the Peacebuilding Power State For All. The funds raised from LUNAFEST: Minneapolis go toward Peacebuilding’s scholarships that help make our trainings accessible to all by offsetting the cost of tuition. We hope you join us for an evening of Peacebuilding in our community.
