Whether they enjoy time in the saddle or not, fans of motorcycle films are spoiled for material. Online, featured in major movies and special events in theaters all fill the need to see motorcycles on the big screen. Part of this motion picture movement is the much-celebrated Motorcycle Film Festival held in New York over the last four years.
This particular brand of motorcycle event has made its way to Park City, Utah where rides and biker movies will meet, but the funds raised will go towards the city’s historical Egyptian Theatre. The Park City Moto Union enthusiast riding group has teamed up with the International Motorcycle Film Festival to bring a selection of their films and more to Park City.
Dubbed the “Moto Union Film Festival”, the event is donating 100% of the proceeds to the Egyptian Theatre and its Youtheatre Programs. The festival will celebrate filmmakers and storytellers, providing them with a unique and engaging platform to share their stories.
The first film screenings in Park City at The Historic Egyptian Theatre kick off June 16th and are followed by parties and group rides over two days. Subtitles as movie-night, party, breakfast, films, and group rides the cinematic treats include
- Ride On United
- Out of Nothing
- Expedition Cambodia (featured below)
- Virginia’s Harley
- Richie Pan Forever
- Lone Rider
- How to be Deadly
- Take None Give None
Riders who don’t find themselves in Utah but are ready to overdose on motorcycle movies should put September 20th on the biker calendar, that's when the Motorcycle Film Festival (MFF) hosts its three day festival in Brooklyn , NY. In just 4 short years, the MFF has become an internationally recognized film festival setting the bar for the best motorcycle films the world has to offer.
Many of the films seen at the Moto Union Film Festival will be given awards at the Motorcycle Film Festival.
