At the end of four days and dozens of films screened, the story of one of America’s most important motorcycle pioneers, John Penton, took home the coveted “Best Feature Documentary” award at the second annual Motorcycle Film Festival held in New York City on Sept 24-27.
In it’s first official film festival appearance, PENTON: The John Penton Story won the award against other wonderful films which included the new On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter, which the producers of the Penton film are also Executive Producers on.
“What an honor to win this award with so many other great films,” said Todd Huffman, the film’s director and producer at Pipeline Digital Media (PDM). “It’s a testament to the story itself and all the hard work our crew and the rest of the people involved put into the film.”
The award will help promote the film even further to encourage the public and motorcycle dealers, clubs, etc. to see and have screenings of the film through the unique “Theatrical On Demand” system with Gathr Films. Anyone can host a screening of the film simply by signing up and then promoting it to all their friends and contacts through social media, email, and local promotion. Hosting a screening costs nothing.
