Two screenings will be held Saturday, April 2 at 2:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at Corona Del Mar’s Port Theater at 2​905 East Coast Hwy.

“We are thrilled to host the LUNAFEST® film festival in Orange County for the first time,” said JLOCC President Carla Dillon.

“This event is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate women in film, bring awareness to issues affecting women across the globe and further our mission to improve the health, education and well-being of all members of the Orange County community.”

The program runs 90 minutes and will be followed by a question and answer session with Los Angeles based Anna ​Schumacher, director one of the featured films, “Finding June.”​

O​n Saturday evening following the screening, guests are invited to enjoy an old Hollywood-theme red carpet party with hors d’oeuvres, drinks, a silent auction and prizes.
