Stay tuned for more details for this year's festival!
Sponsored by First Congregational Church
Description: A traveling film festival of award-winning short films by, for and about women. On the tour this year are nine films dealing with chemotherapy, getting dumped, a gymnast, a mother and daughter selling tacos, a bicycle designer, a shy photographer and a day at the river.
At the 6pm Saturday showing, at First Congregational, the evening also will include refreshments and a showing of a 30-minute film by Saginawian Kelly Coffey. Titled "Chick Book," it finds a sports-loving guy expecting Detroit Tigers tickets from his girlfriend for his birthday – but instead receiving a life-changing book.Coffey also will speak briefly about filmmaking and answer questions.
Just the Lunafest films shown at 3pm Thursday at Hoyt Library. Proceeds benefit the Saginaw Underground Railroad.
Sponsored by the Jury Foundation
Short films submitted to our contest from around the nation and overseas are shown in two installments, at 3pm Friday and Saturday at the Saginaw Club, with those attending each showing voting on their favorites in three categories. A panel of judges also will vote on their top selections.
The winners are announced and shown at 6pm Sunday at First Congregational, with refreshments included.
Film Showing and Community Filmmaking
During a 72-hour period Oct. 12-14, filmmakers (single or in teams) were given a topic, a prop and a line or two of script and had to write, cast, film, edit and submit a 3- to 5-minute short.
