Ninth annual Lunafest film festival benefits local filmmakers
September 14, 2018
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Bud Werner Memorial Library and Young Bloods Collective present Steamboat Springs’ ninth annual Lunafest, a nationally touring film festival of award-winning short films made by women, at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20 in Library Hall.
The festival highlights women as leaders in society, illustrated through nine short films by women filmmakers, plus a screening of local filmmaker Courtney Blackmer’s 16-minute film, “The Confluence,” which explores how the physical landscapes of the Grand Canyon shapes the cultural, emotional and spiritual landscapes of the Navajo people who inhabit it.
If you go
When: 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20
Where: Library Hall at Bud Werner Memorial Library
Cost: $10 donation
Lunafest films range from animation to fictional drama and cover topics such as women's health, body image, relationships, cultural diversity and breaking barriers. These stories of reflection, hope and humor will compel discussion, make you laugh, tug at your heartstrings and motivate you to make a difference in your community.
As a special collaborative addition to this year’s Lunafest, Young Bloods Collective will have the Invisibility Puzzle for the community to learn about and create their own contribution to this county-wide living art piece.
Your $10 donation at the door helps support this festival’s continued screening in Steamboat and Young Blood Collective’s new efforts to support local female filmmakers, as well as their annual SPEAK performances. Visit http://www.steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.
