Fall’s almost here, and that means days are getting shorter, temperatures are dropping, and motorcycle season will soon come to an end. Bummer. But, fall’s arrival also means the Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival is running again.
This year, the Festival runs September 17-25, with showings in-person at the Revue Cinema and online at TorontoMotoFilmFest.com. The return to the Revue (in Toronto’s Roncesvalles neighbourhood) is great news, as in-person viewing wasn’t possible last fall. Now, for the festival’s fifth running, we’ve got in-person showtimes on September 17 and 18 (see here for more details and tickets).
Otherwise, viewers can enjoy the festival’s films online from anywhere in the world. Once again, the lineup is not geo-restricted. Tune in from Moose Jaw, and avoid the 401’s traffic.
What’s on the schedule?
As always, this year’s films cover the whole motorcycle spectrum: Racing, custom bikes, travel, adventure.

Otherwise, there’s plenty of stuff from the US and overseas, and some of these films have already won awards in other festivals.As always, this year’s films cover the whole motorcycle spectrum: Racing, custom bikes, travel, adventure. This is top-shelf content, as the TMFF curates its festival very carefully.
