Hunter Todd, Worldfest-Houston Founding Director.

"I am thrilled and honored to win the 2020 Gold NASA REMI award for MARCH TO THE MOON. This year, as we celebrate another anniversary of Apollo 11, we must pause and recognize not only these timeless achievements, but also remember how difficult it was in 1969, and the many challenges that NASA and these Flight Directors overcame in order to safely get to the Moon and back," said Kevin Stirling, the film's producer, and director.

As part of the film's rollout, art lovers, space-film fans and movie trivia buffs around the world will enjoy the movie's eye-catching publicity posters by the film's Art Director, Perry Stirling, a distinguished former Coast Guard artist, award-winning American artist best known for his black-and-white illustrations, colorful maritime & train paintings, and also − the filmmakers' father.

"Today we have amazing platforms like PBS, History Channel, Discovery, NASA TV Documentaries, Curiosity Stream, Disney, NatGeo, A&E TV, ViacomCBS & CNNFilms to name a few.
