LUNAFEST® Nantucket | MAY 29, 2021
April 22, 2021 @ 12:00PM — June 2, 2021 @ 8:30PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
LUNAFEST® Nantucket is the new signature event for NCTV, returning to Nantucket this May 29, 2021. This season’s LUNAFEST will present eight selected films designed to compel discussion, bring laughter, and even some tears. Incredibly diverse in style and content, LUNAFEST is united by a common thread of exceptional storytelling – by, for, and about women. LUNAFEST features filmmakers from around the world telling a variety of stories.
The power of storytelling based on truth can change global views. Films are proven to impact change by awareness and influence. All of the arts are celebrated in filmmaking from concept theory, writing, drawing, imagery, animation, filming, and editing.
This evening film festival has become the thing to do for those on Nantucket looking for an alternative to the Memorial Day Weekend festivities. This year, on May 29th, 2021, LUNAFEST® Nantucket will be a hybrid event - it will take place virtually from the comfort of your home as well as in-person at the Dreamland Theater with limited capacity and socially distanced. The films will start at 6:30 p.m.
LUNAFEST will become one of NCTV's ongoing fundraisers crucial to the building renovations for expanding our broadcast TV studio and classrooms, as well as essential funding for original programming.
In conjunction with LUNAFEST, NCTV is holding an online silent auction to support this fundraiser effort. Travel packages with 2-year extensions, art and jewelry from local artisans, limited edition signed movie and music collectibles, and sumptuous offerings from the island’s top restaurants are just a few of the items on offer. Bidding begins May 17 and will continue until May 31st at midnight and winners will be announced by phone call.
