    In 2000, LUNA started LUNAFEST – a traveling film festival celebrating, showcasing and championing women in film. Join the Associate Board of GOTR Rockies in celebrating the women who created, starred in and inspired these films.

    All proceeds from the event will benefit Girls on the Run Rockies, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident through a curriculum based running program.
