It’s September again, and that means it’s almost time for the Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival.
This year, the festival runs September 17-25, with films screening at Toronto’s Revue Cinema and also available for online viewing at home, with no geo-restrictions. That means you can take in the TMFF from wherever you live, whether it’s Baie Verte, Newfoundland, or Bangkok, Thailand.
Unlike past years, which saw an emphasis on in-person screenings at the Revue, there are only four showtimes at the theatre this year (6:30 PM and 9:30 PM on September 17 and 18). Obviously, the organizers are unable to jam all the festival’s 10 features and 15 shorts into those showtimes, so keen festival goers can expect to watch at least some of the films online, if they want to take them all in.
Even if you’re disappointed that you can’t see all films in-person, remember that last year was online-only, so this year’s schedule is a big improvement. Tickets to individual showtimes are $16 each, and a complete online festival pass is $65. Prices range from $8.99 to $5.99 to free for individual viewing passes for the festival’s online films. Those prices don’t include HST—more details here.
There are five Canadian films on the list this year, an all-time high for the festival, which is also in its fifth year. This year’s lineup contains, as always, a wide range of subject matter: Vintage motorcycling, street and offroad racing, adventure riding, touring, biopic, and more. See the whole catalogue here.
