Introduction and Background

Join the Betty-Ann Heggie Womentorship Foundation and the Edwards School of Business in a special screening of LUNAFEST, the International Film Festival.

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.

Join us on International Women's Day at LUNAFEST 2020 to take in the spectacle with a free popcorn, drink, and LUNAbar. Enjoy the panelist discussion following the screening with moderator Rachelle Brockman.

Proceeds from admission will be 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 Chicken and Egg Pictures. Seating is limited!
