Raising awareness about issues related to domestic & dating violence

Get Involved with LUNAFEST! August 3, 2011

Filed under: Domestic Violence Awareness Month,fundraisers,volunteering — Women's Studies Intern @ 2:43 pm

LUNAFEST is a film festival composed of short films that are “by, for, and about women.”  Since its creation in 2000, LUNAFEST has raised over $570,000 for various women’s organizations and has grown from a single annual festival to over 150 festivals each year.  In 2010, FVPC launched our first LUNAFEST at an event during DVAM with 130+ people attending.  We’d like to do it again but need some help!

Tina Joy Craven, our fearless producer of last year’s LUNAFEST, in need of a co-leader to help organize and promote the event!  The co-leader must be passionate about the project and have enough time to devote to it. She/he needs to be PR savvy (posting fliers, Facebooking, Tweeting and coordinate press releases, etc.)  and willing to hustle far and wide to get the word out!   There will be a lot of correspondence with Tina through email and phone calls. There is organizational, marketing, and fundraising skills involved in this rewarding and fun experience.  Knowledge about online ticketing would be helpful but is not required.  Duration of project: 3 months start to finish.

If you are interested in co-leading this project, please contact Elizabeth at: elizabeth(at)fvpcoc(dot)org and she’ll forward your details on to Tina.

Note: As a non-profit organization whose client base is 85% women, we aren’t “helping” other women’s organizations in a financial sense but we do partner with local women’s organizations to help our clients get the services that they need as well as offer our free community ed programs to Orange County agencies who serve men and women that request training around the issue of intimate partner violence.  I hope this answers the comment approved below.
