LUNAFEST, a national festival of women's films, features award-winning short films for, by, and about women that tell thought-provoking stories of coming-of-age, love and loss, and reflections on the past. They also have Tragic Refuge, a short film about incarcerated survivors of domestic violence. This insightful film was shot in Dayton and produced by by Chinonye Chukwu, who recently made history at Sundance Film Festival as the first black woman to win their top Jury Prize in the Dramatic category for her film, Clemency. This is sponsored by Dayton Women's Rights Alliance and is at The Neon on Sunday, 3pm.

The Leadership Dayton Class of 2020 applications are now open. Details are online, and the application deadline is March 29th. I was in the Leadership Class several years ago and it is a wonderful way to learn about the greater Dayton area and make all kind of connections.
