Motorcycle Film Festival

A press release...

After a successful first year, the 2nd Annual Motorcycle Film Festival will be held on September 24–27, 2014 at The Gutter (200 North 14th Street, Williamsburg) in Brooklyn, New York. The festival will feature official screenings of short- and feature-length documentaries and narratives alongside more experimental films. Other events include screenings of classic films, filmmaker talks, an art exhibition, bands, bowling, and more! On the final day, a distinguished panel of judges comprising filmmakers, writers, custom builders, and esteemed motorcycle enthusiasts will select winners from each film category. A full list of films, filmmakers, and schedules can be found at Motorcycle Film Festival tickets

 Returning judges include Paul D’Orleans a.k.a. The Vintagent, JP of The Selvedge Yard, Stacie London of Triple Nickel 555 and East Side Moto Babes. We’re just as thrilled to welcome our new judges for this year: Paul Cox (Paul Cox Industries), Ultan Guilfoyle (Guggenheim Museum’s Art of the Motorcycle), Shinya Kimura (Chabott Engineering), Chris Logsdon (Godspeed Co.), Amos Poe (filmmaker/artist), Hayden Roberts (Hell On Wheels MC), Roland Sands (Roland Sands Design), Peter Starr (film accolades…Take it to the Limit) and last year’s ‘Best of Festival’ winner Eric Ristau (Best Bar In America).

Also as I'm sure you've seen I've got a short film at this years Motorcycle Film Festival. I'm going to be going out to NYC for a week sketching at a couple of workshops including Hugh Mackie's and Paul Cox's places, before the festival. I'm hoping it will be a productive trip. Attached is a copy of my poster for my film (in case you feel the need to post it up on the blog) which is going to be shown at 5 on the Friday. I will keep you up to date with it all.
