Lights, camera, LUNAFEST


Coralville Center for Performing Arts — April 23 at 6 p.m. ($12-$20)

LUNAFEST, now in its third year, is a nationwide traveling film festival that will visit 150 cities in 2014. This year’s festival features nine award-winning short films by, for and about women. The lineup includes comedy, drama, documentary and animated films.

Proceeds from the silent auction and movie screening will support Girls on the Run of Eastern Iowa (GOTR-EI) and the Breast Cancer Fund. LUNAFEST’s efforts will ensure that GOTR-EI has the necessary resources to continue providing healthy living programming to underprivileged girls. GOTR-EI will receive 85 percent of the net proceeds from the evening, with the rest going to benefit the Breast Cancer Fund.
