Annual Film Festival


The Arc of Larimer County, we have been closely monitoring Coronavirus and are striving to play our part in reducing and preventing community spread.    In an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone the Film Festival.  This is a fluid situation, and we will share the rescheduled date as soon as possible.  You can check back at this page for updates or subscribe to our e-newsletter here to get updates emailed to you.

If you have purchased a ticket, you will automatically be refunded.  Please allow up to 14 business days to see the refund fully processed.  If your refund is not received during that time frame, please email film@arclc.org.  Once we publish a new date, you will have the opportunity to repurchase your ticket.

We would like to recognize the winners our the Film Festival Contest, “Awesome in Action.”  Our staff greatly enjoyed their project and we are sad we won’t be able to celebrate their work with you this month.  We hope to have a ceremony recognizing their hard work at the rescheduled date.


The Arc of Larimer County’s annual film festival aligns with awareness month to dispel stereotypes about individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The festival features short films that spread awareness and dispel stereotypes about people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
