"My goal this year is to get more men to come and see the films," notes Colleen Cooke, organizer of LunaFest, a movie festival taking place tonight in Boulder. "A lot of them think all the films will be negative toward men, but they're not."
Luna, which makes nutrition bars for women, launched LunaFest in 2000 as a single event. Since then, hundreds of festivals have been staged, and Cooke points out that "they've become our primary fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Fund," which will split the Boulder bash's proceeds with the HealthLinks Foundation. Flicks on the bill include Pockets, an animated piece about motherhood by Sophie Ohara, plus additional material that Cooke says "Hollywood hasn't caught up with yet for one reason or another."
Most dudes haven't, either but now's their chance.
LunaFest takes place at 7 p.m. at the Boulder Theater, 2032 14th Street; tickets are $12.50. Call 303-786-7030 or visit www.lunafest.org for more information.
