9th annual Lunafest film festival benefits local filmmakers

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. Thursday, Sept. 20, in Library Hall.

If you go

What: Lunafest
When: 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20
Where: Library Hall at Bud Werner Memorial Library
Cost: $10 donation

The festival includes 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 shape the cultural, emotional and spiritual landscapes of the Navajo people who inhabit it.

Lunafest films range from animation to fictional drama and cover topics such as women’s health, body image, relationships, cultural diversity and breaking barriers. 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 countywide living art piece.

A $10 donation at the door helps support the 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 Steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.
