When: Fri., Feb. 7, 6:30-9 p.m. 2014
Not-so-fun fact: Male directors vastly outnumber female ones. This Friday, support the work of female filmmakers at Lunafest — a traveling festival organized by nutrition bar company Luna that spotlights short films by, for, and about women — at the Craneway Pavilion (1414 Harbour Way S., Richmond). This year’s nine featured movies focus on a variety of issues including health, motherhood, diversity, and aging: María of Many tells the story of a Mexican immigrant who finds a supportive community in an all-women, worker-run cooperative, while Granny’s Got Game follows a national-championship-winning septuagenarian basketball team called the Fabulous Seventies. Proceeds will go toward the Breast Cancer Fund and human-trafficking prevention efforts in Alameda County.
