At the second annual Motorcycle Film Festival held in New York City on Sept 24-27th, PENTON: The John Penton Story won the coveted Best Feature Documentary award. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise, really, as MO contributor, Todd Raferty, reviewed the film himself and gave it high praise. 

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 AnySunday, The Next Chapter, which the producers of the Penton film are also Executive Producers on.

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.
