LUNAFEST brings Next Level Energy at fall film festival

October 31st, 2019 by

You haven’t experienced next level energy until you’ve attended LUNAFEST in the Twin Cities. Last week, Girls on the Run Twin Cities hosted their third annual LUNAFEST film festival and let us tell you, it was a hoot and a half (in the best way, of course).

As the six short films ran, so did the tears, laughs, and “awwwh”’s. From comedy and culture, to gender and glass ceilings, LUNAFEST covered it all and as always, did not disappoint. Every person who attended was there for it all. The electric enthusiasm and passion in the room could be felt. Maybe it was the wine and the pink lemonade pop-corn, or maybe we just have some amazing community citizens. Probably the latter.

While food, fellowship, and fun raffle prizes–including a Lincoln Experience–could have easily been the highlight, our favorite moment from the night was being able to connect with women who were curious as to how Apple Autos got involved with an event like LUNAFEST. We love the question, “How did a car dealership wind up here?”, because as you may know, our heartbeat at Apple Autos is to strengthen our communities. Through Jana’s Fund, we are able to partner with organizations like Girls on the Run and other non-profits who are working to benefit the next generation. We could not be more proud to team up with the organizations who make a different every day.


No, it’s not a celebration of the moon, though something like that probably does exist.

LUNAFEST is a national film festival that features short films written by women, for women, about women. The LUNAFEST films range from animation to fictional drama and cover topics relating to women’s health, motherhood, body image, relationships, cultural diversity, breaking barriers and more. The films are selected by an outside board of advisors comprised of notables in the film industry.

Sounds pretty cool, right? Join us next year in 2020!
