Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 is an Official Selection at The Archaeology Channel International Film and Video Festival which will be held in Eugene, Oregon May 9-13, 2014.
"We received 113 Film entries from 24 countries," said Festival Director Dr. Richard Pettigrew. "The quality of the entries is very high and we will be showing films that are among the best in the world in the archaeology/cultural heritage genre, so a selection in this competition is an accomplishment."
"We are thrilled that Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 has been selected in the TAC Film Festival," said producer Tammy Rundle. "The Ioway trilogy documentary project has been deeply rewarding for us and we count ourselves very fortunate to have long-lasting friendships among the Ioway."
Lost Nation: The Ioway 2 won the Best Feature-Length Documentary award at the Iowa Independent Film Festival in October 2013 with representatives of the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma in attendance.
