LUNAFEST: Minneapolis & LUNAFEST: Saint Paul
For the fourth year in a row, Minnesota Peacebuilding Leadership Institute has been selected to host LUNAFEST: Minneapolis and, for a second year, LUNAFEST: Saint Paul! Produced by nationally known Luna Bars, whole nutrition bars for women, LUNAFEST is a traveling film festival of award-winning short films by, for and about women, though the films are enjoyed by everyone! This season, LUNAFEST's program of nine internationally curated short films are filled with stories of reflection, hope, and humor.
We are so excited to announce that Minneapolis' Mayor Betsy Hodges will be our Honorary Chairwoman at our Minneapolis event!
We hope you'll come out to support local peacebuilding and have a fun time watching films as well as putting your name in our raffle basket drawing! Local businesses have donated goods, gift cards and vouchers to make these baskets amazing.
