It’s been a big month for the film adding this award and earlier in the month winning “Grand Prize” at the Kids Video Connection Children’s Film Festival.

“Congratulations! Not only has Arapaho Truths been selected for this year’s Popcorn Roulette Film Festival, but it also won the ‘Best Documentary’ award!” wrote Festival Director John-Michael Gariepy.

The Popcorn Roulette Festival is scheduled to take place in late September 2020, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates of the festival are not certain. However, festival organizers are determined to wait and hold an in-person film a festival when conditions are right.

“I don’t need to tell you that 2020 is proving to be a trying year,” Gariepy continued. “A number of festivals canceled in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since our film festival is scheduled for late September, we don’t know exactly what will happen. But however long it takes, we’re going to make sure people see your film. You worked hard and did excellent work, and I want to make sure people see that work.”

The Popcorn Roulette Festival will host the Massachusetts premiere of Arapaho Truths, Massachusetts is the home state of both George Giglio and Joe Collins of Moonstar Productions.
