Osher LLI at FAU to Host National Film Festival LUNAFEST®
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida Atlantic University will present two virtual screenings of the 2021 LUNAFEST® Film Festival on Wednesday, March 3 and Thursday, March 4 at 4 p.m.
LUNAFEST® is a traveling film festival of award-winning short films by, for and about women. This season, the program of eight films – filled with stories of reflection, hope and humor – will travel to more than 200 cities and raise more than $6 million.
Each year, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute hosts the film festival, which raises funds for scholarships for students pursuing a degree at FAU Jupiter as well as the main beneficiary, Chicken & Egg Pictures. This nonprofit organization supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change. A virtual watch party will begin at 4 p.m. on both days followed by a discussion with Jacqueline Fewkes, Ph.D., a professor of anthropology in the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College at FAU. Tickets are $40.
