The Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival is returning this month, and once again, you can watch this year’s selected films from anywhere in the world.
As the name implies, the Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival runs in the Canadian city of Toronto. That’s problematic if you want to watch the films, but you can’t get to Toronto. Or maybe you want to steer clear of Hogtown, to avoid potential exposure to Drake’s 10-ply-soft rap lyrics, or the Maple Leafs hockey team. Nobody needs that kind of multi-generational losing streak accidentally rubbing off on them.
Good news, then—this year’s festival is once again viewable online, with no geo-restrictions. The TMFF started this program last year, when the coronavirus pandemic made in-person viewing impossible. This year, you can once again buy an online viewing pass, although the festival also returns to the Revue Cinema in Toronto’s Roncesvalles neighbourhood as well.
This year, the festival will have two in-person showtimes at the Revue on September 17, and another two in-person showtimes on September 18. If you want to go to the Revue, tickets are $16 for each showtime. Otherwise, a you can get an online festival pass for $65, or pay $8.99 or less for individual viewing passes for the festival’s offerings. More details here.
The Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival always covers the entire motorcycle scene, so there’s racing films, biopics, quirky shorts and more. There’s always a decent amount of ADV content, and this year’s festival is no different, with both shorts and features focused on adventure motorcycling. See this year’s full lineup here.
