Luna Lumen's First Annual Film Festival gives the ultimate experience to the filmmaker. We help them make professional connections and get feedback on their film in a highly concentrated fashion.

As we make selections, we get screening rooms ready in a "Pre-Festival" mode in preparation for the Festival in October. We are uniquely different in the best way possible.

We in addition do unique Pop Up Festivals where we bring the big screen experience to the public in a fun yet, professional way that gives filmmakers a way to screen their film on the big screen before a live audience.

Winners will be awarded a unique spaceship trophy "To The Moon" award, gift cards from our sponsors.
All films in the official selection will compete for awards in the following categories:

Best USA Feature
Best international feature
Best International Short
Best USA Short
Best Documentary
Best Student Film
Best Animation
Best Uncommissioned Screenplay
Best Director
Best Actress
Best Actor
The Best Film of the Festival
