Lunafest Boise 

Saturday, May 19, The Flicks

Luna is the branch of the Clif Bar company dedicated to supporting women: It does everything from sponsoring workshops to publishing tips for closing the wage gap. It's only fitting, then, that Luna is teaming up with Soroptimist International of Boise to put on Lunafest, a traveling film festival screening a slate of nine short films "by, for, and about women." Some of the films are animated, others are first-person accounts, but all of them are meant to empower and inspire, from Emily Sheskin's Jesszilla, the story of 10-year-old boxer Jesselyn Silva, to Waiting For Hassana by Funa Maduka, which follows a Nigerian woman's escape from the Boko Haram. Stick around after to discuss the films, drink wine, graze on snacks and participate in a raffle. Men are welcome, too.
