Tickets! Get yer tickets! The Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival (and subsequent visits across Canada) are just around the corner, and now you can buy a pass to get into the show.
Prices for the shows depend on which city you’re in, and which shows you plan on seeing (one night? two nights?), so your best bet for pricing is to visit the individual sites for Toronto ($75 for VIP), Montreal ($60 for all-access), and Calgary ($25 for all-access).
Earlier this month, we listed the 2022 TMFF film lineup—as usual, it’s a mix of features and shorts from around the world. You can see our list of this year’s films here. There’s only one Canadian film screening this year, so if that’s important to you, make sure you get a ticket that gets you to that showing.
The Toronto shows run at the Revue Cinema in Roncesvalles, just like always, over the October 6-8 weekend.
The Breath of Life
Along with the film lineup, the TMFF organizers are also helping to promote photographer Douglas MacRae’s Breath of Life exhibition at the Birch Contemporary gallery in Toronto. Here’s what the TMFF website says about that exhibition:
“Photographer and artist, Douglas MacRae’s Breath of Life show is a retrospective of his two greatest passions, travel and motorcycle racing. His lifelong wanderlust and adventurous spirit, inspired him to capture evocative cultures and extraordinary landscapes including Bhutan, Burma, Tibet, Nepal, Kenya, and Indonesia. Douglas has resided in the Dalai Lama’s monastery in India, cruised the Peruvian Amazon and explored Everest Base Camp. During his 20 years as a champion racer, he shot some of the most coveted vintage racing motorcycles across North America. This exhibition is a celebration not only of Douglas’ work but outliving his one year prognosis of stage 4 glioblastoma. Despite the challenges of this incurable brain cancer, he has maintained a positive mindset and is now at the three and a half year mark.”
From the photos we’ve already seen, this looks like a fantastic exhibit, especially if you’re familiar with MacRae’s adventures on two wheels and his life behind the lens. It runs September 8 – October 8, 2022. Learn more here.
