In 2015, 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 Moonfaze Feminist Film Festival. The festival ran for two years in Los Angeles, CA celebrating feminist films from all around the world. Although the response to the festival was beyond her wildest dreams, due to a lack of funding, and yet determined to keep on with the Moonfaze mission, Premstar decided to transition the festival into an online film journal.
"I am so thrilled and grateful for the support Moonfaze has received over the past two years. And now with the launch of our new platform the support and phenomenal response has only grown. The fact that the Moonfaze movement is able to continue on means the world to me." -Premstar Santana
