EWING, NJ … The College of New Jersey will host LUNAFEST®, the fundraising film festival dedicated to promoting awareness about women’s issues, highlighting women filmmakers, and bringing women together in their communities, at the Library Auditorium in Ewing on Friday, March 18, 2011.

This unique film festival highlights women as leaders in society, illustrated through nine short films by women filmmakers. The films range from animation to fictional drama, and cover topics such as women’s health, motherhood, body image, aging, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.

All proceeds from LUNAFEST will benefit the Breast Cancer Fund and the Christina S. Walsh Breast Cancer Foundation (http://www.christinaswalshbcf.org/).  The foundation’s mission is to provide financial assistance to breast cancer patients and their families thus easing the hardships they are experiencing.
