A Christmas Snow is widely and enthusiastically being embraced by audiences everywhere. The director of the inspiring film, Tracy J Trost brings us a heartwarming tale of faith, family, and forgiveness.
Starring Catherine Mary Stewart, Muse Watson, Anthony Tyler Quinn and Cameron ten Napel, A Christmas Snow will be available in stores and online on October 8, 2010.
When asked about the award Trost commented, “It’s always an honor to be recognized by your peers and it’s a testament to the incredible cast and crew of ‘A Christmas Snow‘. This award is all of ours and I was happy to represent the team.”
In addition to the award was a $2,500 cash prize, which Trost promptly donated back to the festival instructing them to create the Muse Watson Scholarship for next year with an award for Best Up & Coming Actor in order to help those just getting in the business.

For Kathleen, (Catherine Mary Stewart) Christmas has always been an unwelcome reminder of her father’s abandonment almost 30 years ago. Although she has tried to forget her past, it has not forgotten her, and in the days leading up to Christmas an unforgiving blizzard traps her in her own home with two unlikely roommates. Sam (Muse Watson), a gentle older man Kathleen took in for the night and Lucy (Cameron ten Napel), the daughter of her soon to be fiancé (Anthony Tyler Quinn) bring her face to face with the hurts of her past. Will she be able to let go and grab hold of a life changing forgiveness or will she continue to be haunted by the pain of the past?
