While the Chicago International Film Festival was in town, I got an exciting opportunity to photograph Lunafest at the AMC River East 21. Lunafest, established in 2000 by LUNA, the makers of nutrition bars for women, is a series of short films by, for, and about women. Each year, the traveling fest promotes female filmmakers while simultaneously raising awareness and encouraging support for various women's nonprofits throughout North America and Canada. In between taking photos, I had a chance to watch a few of the short films and thought they were fantastic. The film show was followed by a wine reception at Lucky Strike. The crowd was inspired and the atmosphere joyous. My congrats to Ashley Koehn for organizing a fantastic event!
