A touring collection of short films created by women and featuring women will stop in Austin Saturday.

Lunafest features eight short films by women filmmakers. They range from animation to fictional drama, and cover topics such as women’s health, motherhood, body image, aging, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.

Doors open at 10 a.m. Saturday at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar, 1120 S. Lamar Boulevard. Films start at 10:30 a.m. Tickets are $10 ($25 for VIP), and proceeds benefit the Breast Cancer Fund and Texas Mamma Jamma Ride. To purchase them, go here.

This year’s Texas Mamma Jamma Ride is set for Sept. 23 in Martindale. The ride raises money to support local programs and services for breast cancer fighters and survivors in Central Texas.
