The 2nd Annual Motorcycle Film Festival - Sept 24-27
*** SHILL ALERT ***
Hey ADV, I know this might get bumped over to the regionals, but seeing as we're the only international (just had our 1st screening in India!) film fest entirely dedicated to motorcycles, I figured I'd give it a shot here first.
Anyways, the Motorcycle Film Festival is less than 3 weeks away and my partner and I have been busting my ass on this since the day last year's fest ended and I'm pretty proud of what we're putting together. We've been lucky enough to have a few amazing folks chip in and help out as well and we're feeling pretty good about the whole thing.
Events go from the 24th-27th of this month, all at The Gutter Bar on N14th street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY (same place as the NYC Vintage Moto show/Works engineering for those familiar with the area). In the plans are:
- A pre-party screening of our Judge Peter Starr's classic, "Take It To The Limit"
- 9 Screenings of films submitted for this year (over 30 short and feature films in documentary, narrative, and experimental genres)
- 2 Afterparties (on fri and sat) with Julia Haltigan and Daddy Long Legs headlining
- Maybe an art show...?
- Filmmaker Q&A's hosted by a bunch of our judges
- Other various shenanigans
I'd love it if y'all would come out and support. We've got some killer films including the amazing doc on the Pentons who brought KTM and modern dirt biking to the US, a movie about Indian wall of death riders, 85 year old sidecar world champions, Dave Roper and the Isle of Man, chopper legend Tom Fugle, the Dirtbag challenge, and what's still looking like the North American Debut of the new On Any Sunday! On the specifically ADV tip, we've got a killer movie called Somewhere Else Tomorrow with all the R80GS and travel porn your heart desires.
We've got a f*%# ton of movies, We've got a ton of good folks coming into town from all over the world. We've got parties, art, the whole 9 yards. Most of our judges will be in attendance too.
Here's the panel for this year:
- Paul d'Orleans "the Vintagent"
- JP from The Selvedge Yard
- Stacie B. London of the East Side Moto Babes, 55 Triple Nickel Racing / LAMOCA
- Paul Cox of Paul Cox Industries
- Roland Sands of Roland Sands Design
- Shinya Kimura of Chabott Engineering / formerly of Zero Engineering
- Peter Starr, legendary motorcycle filmmaker
- Amos Poe, long time NYC Punk/Independent filmmaker
- Ultan Guilfoyle, filmmaker and curator of The Art of the Motorcycle show at the Guggenheim museum
- Eric Ristau, filmmaker of "Best Bar In America" and winner of last year's MFF Best in Festival Award
- Chris Logsdon of Godspeed Co. / Iron & Air Magazine
- Hayden Roberts of Hell on Wheels MC
Now all we need is good people to show up and have a good time. If you head to our website www.motorcyclefilmfestival.com and check it out, it has all the details on the schedule of films and how to buy tickets. Or, if you want to skip that part and go right to the store, here's the link to our bigcartel. My one piece of advice would be to buy tickets soon as they're going super fast and the venue only seats like 90 people a screening.
Also, if y'all wouldn't mind doing me a favor and following us on instagram(@motofilmfest), twitter(@motofilmfest), and facebook and spreading the word, it'd be awesome. We could definitely use the help.
Hope to see ya there!

Hey y'all, there's only 10 passes left to the fest and tickets are going to be sold out probably by the end of the day monday. If any of you guys are planning on coming next week to any of the screenings, I definitely recommend getting tickets soon. Fortunately the parties are free and the sunday screening of Michael Schmidt's new film about Tom Fugle is also free.
