Motorcycle Film Festival in New York- event which inspired me

Motorcyclists in full costume on their way.
Just look at those motorcyclists, don’t you feel their freedom just after looking at them?

There is no city like NY. I think it’s one of my favorite. Crazy place, always something is happening, during day and night- amazing! I was spending half of the summer in USA and I run into  Motorcycle Film Festival in New York. It was interesting opportunity to see different types of movies connected with one theme- motorcycles. We had a chance to choose our favorite movie, so did the jury. There were a few categories, ( like feature documentary, experimental, feature narrative etc.) in all of them I found something special.

Festival which inspired me…

I regret that this movies are not popular, at least not in mainstream. You don’t realize they exist until you accidentally find festival like this.  Movie Ride On United of  Riefky Sutedja won the award of the festival. Peoples’ choice was  Richie Pan Forever of Pete McGill. I can also recommend you a few titles I liked the most: Klocked: Women With Horsepower, Hell Rider – Deadly Barrel or 21 Days Under The Sky.

Famous 66 route is attraction for all motorcycle lovers and those, who saw american movies about rebels on two wheels.

Actually after this movie festival I couldn’t do anything better than hire Harley Davidson and ride famous 66 historic road. Actually I made only half way ( more or less)- from Chicago to Oklahoma City.  It was really relaxing to feel the summer wind on me and watch american landscapes. It’s an easy route, rather touristic and commercial but still you can feel the spirit. I was sleeping in the motels and eating in inns and it was simply great.

  1. Of course you found something for you in NY because it’s amazing city! Sth is happening all the time. This festival sounds like fun, especially if you are automotive fan. You must be if you took a huge vehicle and rode 66 route 😀 great!

  2. Woah, It’s my dream to ride route 66! But I live in France and now for me it’s impossible… I saw many road movies and I hope one day my dream will come true. I like your blog, keep writing!
