The 1st Annual Motorcycle Film Festival was held in September of 2013 in NYC by a group of motorcyclists and independent filmmakers.
This year, Jack Drury and his co-founder Corinna Mantlo aimed to provide a home for motorcycle films from around the world, and give moto/film enthusiasts a reason to gather, discuss, and celebrate their favorite subject. The five-day film festival was held at The Gutter in Brooklyn, NY with a bike-themed art show across the street at Genuine Motorworks. With inclusion of a separate film space, bar, lounge, art show, mobile food vendors, and rows and rows of bikes, this year’s festival was the largest and most successful to date, attracting over 2000 people from all over the globe: Australia, Japan, France, England, Scotland, California, and even a couple who rode from Oregon on their Honda 90’s. Next step, a multi-city festival taking place in countries all over the world.
