For all our Friends out there:
Sadly, we have to postpone this year’s 9MMFF located in the Bow Valley, Alberta Canada BUT, the show goes on through our partnership with Horizons Unlimited!
Yes, you will still be able to submit your movies to us, and we will be showing them at the 9 largest Horizons Unlimited meetings around the globe for 2017/2018. The deadline for submissions will be July 31st this year with an option to submit in person at any one of these events if you’re there in person.
Nothing has changed concerning the submission rules, so please take the time to review them on our website.
For quick reference, we have listed this year’s HU venues here, starting with the Premier event at Nakusp, British Columbia below.
Your support is always appreciated, and we look forward to bringing this great little independent festival back to the Bow Valley in 2018.
See you there!
THE BEST 9 MINUTE FESTIVAL IN THE WORLD!
No one enjoys the company of someone hellbent on making others feel uncomfortable. Be a decent person and make your mother proud.
Someone has an opinion about your bike too. Big or small, we don’t care. See “Tell a story” for clarification if needed.
Nobody likes the guy snoring in the theatre. Nevil’s attention span lasts 9 minutes – longer than that and he won’t know how your movie ends!
A romantic recollection of highway numbers and road surfaces doesn’t make a story. Nor does the size of your bike.
Yes, the adults in the crowd love a dirty joke but hopefully we’ll also be inspiring the next generation of young riders.
“Borrowing” content like music and images covered by copyright is baaaaaad. Please don’t. Feel free to use royalty-free music or, better yet, enlist the talents of a local musician!
Sure, they’re fun and we even have a category for them but they won’t be winning any awards. Why? Because it’s 2016.
In July 2015 Alan embarked on a journey to The Arctic Circle. The purpose? To feed his own adventurous spirit and to help raise funds for those living with Cerebral Palsy.
Please note: This links to Adam’s original, unedited, 11 minute version. His second-place winning entry was 9 minutes. “Unexpected. There from here” is a short movie created by Adam Torczynski who travelled through Ladakh in August 2015. This short film operates at the border of two of Adam’s important passions: filmmaking and motorcycling.
Three friends set out for the first day of riding of a 5-day off-road adventuring trip. The day starts out relaxed and sunny and things get progressively more challenging. They end up fighting their way through pathless cliffs and forest as the day wears into evening. They begin wondering if they’ll have to spend the night and walk out the next day.
