Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival tickets on sale (and Breath of Life gallery exhibition opens!)
Tickets! Get your tickets! The Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival (and subsequent tours across Canada) are right around the corner, and now you can purchase a pass to access the show.
Show prices depend on the city you’re in and the shows you plan to see (one night? two nights?), so your best bet for prices 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 TMFF 2022 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 movies here. There’s only one Canadian film screening this year, so if it’s important to you, make sure you get a ticket that allows you to attend that screening.
The Toronto shows take place at the Cinema Revue in Roncesvalles, as always, the weekend of October 6-8.
The breath of life
In addition to the film selection, TMFF organizers are also helping to promote the exhibition Breath of Life by photographer Douglas MacRae at Toronto’s Birch Contemporary gallery. Here is what the TMFF website says about this exhibit:
“Photographer and artist, Douglas MacRae’s Breath of Life exhibition is a retrospective of his two greatest passions, travel and motorcycle racing. His wanderlust and lifelong adventurous spirit inspired him to capture evocative cultures and extraordinary landscapes including Bhutan, Burma, Tibet, Nepal, Kenya and Indonesia. Douglas resided in the Dalai Lama’s monastery in India, traveled the Peruvian Amazon and explored Everest Base Camp. In his 20 years as a racing champion, he has photographed some of the most coveted vintage race bikes in North America. This exhibit is a celebration not only of Douglas’s work, but also of his one-year prognosis of stage 4 glioblastoma. Despite the challenges of this incurable brain cancer, he maintained a positive mindset and is now at three and a half years old.”
From the photos we’ve seen before, it 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 from September 8 to October 8, 2022. Find out more here.
