lunafest 2021 with girls on the run

virtual short film festival by and about women

Thank you to all who attended LUNAFEST 2021, a virtual film festival of short films by and about women! We were proud to partner with Girls on the Run Central Iowa sponsored by the YMCA of Greater Des Moines to present LUNAFEST 2021 to our community. Together, Chrysalis and Girls on the Run build resilience, courage, and health in adolescent girls in our community. We believe confident girls become remarkable women. And, every girl deserves the opportunity to achieve her own potential.
