Dear Moonfazers,

After extensive consideration and many hours of deep soul searching, we have decided that due to a lack of funds we will be redirecting our efforts from a live film festival into an online feminist film journal where we will continue to showcase feminist films from around the globe. Although our direction has changed, we are beyond thrilled to be able to move forward with our mission and our passion by carving out an online space for feminist filmmakers to shine. 

As of May 8th, the Moonfaze Feminist Film Festival will be known as

THE MOONFAZE FEMINIST FILM JOURNAL

An online film journal showcasing feminist films from around the globe

Each month we will be featuring one feminist filmmaker and their film. Each featured filmmaker will receive an award laurel, be featured for one month on our journal, and abundantly celebrated on all of our social networking sites.

Throughout each month we will also be celebrating other forms of feminist art: Special guest writers, photography and more.

The two years that we were able to put on our festival has been an incredible experience. We will never forget and be forever grateful for all of the people who contributed to making our festival a reality. 

We look forward to seeing your beautiful work.

In sisterhood, 

The Moonfaze team

MOONFAZE IS A GROUNDBREAKING INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL SHOWCASING WORKS FROM FEMINIST FILMMAKERS AROUND THE GLOBE


Tired of waiting for permission to screen her own films, filmmaker and actor
Premstar Santana decided to create a film festival of her own.

“The idea struck me like a bolt of badass lighting”, says Santana, who created Moonfaze to be a safe space for feminist filmmakers and their films to shine.

Moonfaze’s mission is to engender an all-encompassing peaceful activism that elevates marginalized voices, shedding light on the pervasiveness of misogyny, racism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, and ableism in our everyday experiences.

The December festival is a celebration across genre, showcasing films that foreground a feminist viewpoint and tell HER story: a critical, political, cinematic take on the many levels of oppression we navigate every day as women, transgender people, and people of color.
