Copper Mountain College’s Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Committee and CMC Foundation is proud to bring you the screening of the nationally renowned LUNAFEST Film Festival. This virtual show will be FREE for students, alumni and the community! Viewing will be available on-demand March 20th through the 25th, with a live zoom discussion on March 24, 2021, at 6:30 pm.
This year, LUNAFEST features an all-documentary lineup of seven short films by women filmmakers, sharing new perspectives and lighting a fire in the industry. And for the first time, LUNA has joined forces with Chicken & Egg Pictures to co-produce three of this season’s films to help create a strong community for women in the film industry.
Women are still painfully underrepresented in this medium, where the overall percentage of female directors from the past 13 years remains at 4.8%. However, change is happening. New research from the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative reveals that 10.6% of the directors of 2019’s top movies were women — the highest percentage in more than a decade. “Now more than ever, we’re seeing the importance of shining the light on women in film as well as continuing to support community organizations and connecting in new ways,” says Suzy Starke German, Program Director.
LUNA® Bar has been fighting for change for twenty years. The brand has always committed to inspiring women, championing change, and demanding that equality be a right, not an option. These values fueled LUNA to create LUNAFEST, the first all-women traveling film festival, in its 20th season and screening virtually in 2021.
CMC’s guests will have four days to view the 97 minutes of films. You must register in advance for your exclusive viewing links at https://tinyurl.com/CMCLunaFest. EEO Committee and the Foundation are proud to bring you this important body of work.
