7th Annual Film Festival to be Held on March 8th:

Mark your calendars now for The Arc of Larimer County’s 7th Annual Film Festival to be held on the evening of March 8th, 2019 at the CSU Lory Student Center Theater. You can celebrate National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month every March with short films that break down stereotypes about people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Some films are humorous, some are serious, but all work to spread awareness.

Check back soon for ticket sale details!
