Lunafest International Film Festival

Lunafest International Film Festival and Panelist Discussion

Thank-you for joining us at the Betty-Ann Heggie Womentorship Foundation and the Edwards School of Business in a special screening of LUNAFEST, the International Film Festival. Stay tuned for next year's dates!

LUNAFEST connects women, their stories, and their causes through film. The program will compel discussion, make you laugh, tug at your heartstrings, and motivate you to make a difference in your community. Incredibly diverse in style and content, LUNAFEST is united by a common thread of exceptional storytelling.

The screening was held Wednesday, March 8, 2017 at 7:00pm with a free popcorn, drink, and LUNAbar. Guests enjoyed the panelist discussion following the screening with Moderator Betty-Ann Heggie and panelists, including:

  • Marjorie Delbaere, Associate Professor, Edwards School of Business
  • Sarina Gersher, Ward 8 City Councillor, City of Saskatoon
  • Kit Loewen, Chair, Friends of the Broadway Board
  • Whitney Graves, Radio Host, Rock 102 FM

Proceeds from admission are directed to tuition fees for Proteges from the non-profit sector to attend the Betty-Ann Heggie Womentorship Program at the Edwards School of Business, with a donation also being made to LUNAFEST (the Breast Cancer Fund). This year's festival was generously supported by C95 and 650 CKOM.
