Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival confirms return to Revue Cinema this year!

Caius Tenche, director of the Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival, at the Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival.

Good news! After going all-online for the 2020 season, thanks to COVID-19 restrictions, the Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival says it’s returning to in-person viewing for 2021.

Once again, this year’s festival will run at Toronto’s Revue Cinema. This year’s festival will run September 16-25. Along with the Revue, organizers also say they’re looking at adding other GTA locations for the festival as well. COVID-19 restrictions may still restrict attendance by September, and besides, the festival is growing, and organizers may need more space in order to add film screenings.

The Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival is already at work adding titles for this year—see some information on that below. Remember, TMFF Cinema also offers virtual screening year-round now, for the festival’s curated selection of moto-films.

Press release

TMFF 2021 is September 16–25

Back to the big screen

In-person and digital screenings of the newest and best moto films

This past year has been quite something. Okay, that’s an understatement. It sucked. It’s kept us inside and apart. Enough! TMFF is back with more of the newest and best motorcycle films from around the world; available online and in theatre. Yes, you read that right, in theatre.

As things continue to evolve and open up, we’re planning:

  • in-person screenings at the Revue Cinema and exploring additional locations around the Toronto area,
  • online screenings available worldwide via TMFF Cinema,
  • virtual and live Q&As with filmmakers, and
  • opportunities for us to get together and celebrate.

To get you stoked, here are just a few of the feature films we’ll be premiering:

  • 972 Breakdowns – On the Landway to New York, Daniel von Rüdiger’s incredible adventure riding four Ural motorcycles across three continents over two and a half years, and as you might guess, there were problems.
  • Stéphane Gautronneau’s voyeuristic and moody The Wall, a look at the nearly 100 year old Motodrom wall of death through the eyes of one of its famed riders, Donald Ganslmeier.
  • Cameron Brunt’s Wide of the Mark – A wild and gritty two-week off-road adventure across Tasmania on hand-built motorcycles.

Beginning in early August, we’ll announce the rest of this year’s selection of films along with a schedule and ticketing information here and on our website
