LuneAseas is ringing out the summer at The Lyric Cinema with the 2nd Annual Silent Film Festival.

“Like a music video, but instead of the video being driven by the music, the composition of the music is driven by the movement in the video.”

Last summer during the height of the global pandemic and the entertainment industry shut down, LuneAseas teamed with over 30 different artists to create a socially distant way for artists to continue to create and for audiences to continue to enjoy the performing arts. This year LuneAseas, in partnership with The Lyric Cinema, Bohemian Foundation, and Fort Fund, is bringing together up to 12 new collaborative films and an evening of live composition.

Last year’s audience raved: ”LuneAseas has successfully pulled together a fun creative event that can be enjoyed safely;” ”Sometimes I can’t tell what came first, the music or the movement. These collaborations are truly remarkable.”
