Lunafest, a national traveling festival of short films by and for women, makes its annual appearance at Fresno State at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, at the Satellite Student Union.

Among the films that will be screened are:

  • “I Am a Girl” by Dutch filmmaker Susan Koenen; the story of a 13-year-old girl who was a boy at birth.
