WINTER 2020 UPDATE
Earlier this week we announced the dates for the 4th annual Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival, October 1–3, 2020 at the Revue Cinema. Along with the Festival, we're also going hold several events throughout the year to keep the stoke high and we'll announce those as we firm up the plans. Until then, here are the key Festival dates you need to know.
Underway Film submissions open
Aug 3 TMFF20 Films announced
Aug 17 Early bird Passes and Ticket packages go on sale (new)
Sept 1 General tickets go on sale
Oct 1–3 Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival
Toronto Motorcycle Show
Look for us in the Clutch Society pavilion where we're taking the concept of record store listening stations and reimagining them as theatre screening stations highlighting some of the best films from previous Festivals. Bring a friend and show them was the Festival is all about. Use the promo code CLUTCH to get a $3 discount on the tickets and drop by our booth to say hi.
For the third year in a row, we're going to be holding an outdoor movie night during the Superbike Doubleheader Weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. Last year over 300 people pulled up a lawn chair and joined us under the stars to catch some flics on a giant 24' screen. With the CSBK celebrating its 40-year anniversary this year, we'd be excited to have you join us.
TMFF Hidden Gems
Films we love
Tunnel of Love
Sexy, funny, and vintagey, this short from 1997 includes a young Tamara Beckwith, an original score by Joe Strummer of The Clash, and has a wonderful feel to it. It's the typical boy sees girl, boy chases girl plot line with a twist and it's hot, and fun. We don't want to give too much away but go check this out. Smiles guaranteed.
It's Better In The Wind
Sticking to films that have a strong emotional connection, Scott Toepfer's short is a long-time favourite for its slow and introspective mood. Composed using still photos and video captured over two years using both an HD digital camera and a Super 8mm, Scott and friends travel around the Western United States. It's a beautiful ode to motorcycling, friends, and exploration that makes us long for summer. The fantastic soundtrack is a definite bonus.
