MOTOEXPED PRESENTS

9 MINUTE MOTO FILM FESTIVAL


IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HORIZONS UNLIMITED
& WE LOVE MOTOGEO

The End of an Era…

It is with much thought and regret that we are announcing the closure of the 9MMFF. Life’s busy schedule has meant we are unable to spend the time to nurture this into something bigger.

Thank you to everyone who supported the idea, We Love Motogeo & Horizons Unlimited and to everyone who spent the time to sit diligently in front of their computers to produce 9 minutes of their life and send it to us.

Please continue to record your greatest and maybe not so greatest moments, we will keep an eye out for them on social media!

HU CanWest & 9MMFF
August 24-27, 2017

THE BEST 9 MINUTE FESTIVAL IN THE WORLD!

MANY OF THE FILMS SUBMITTED TO 9 MINUTE MOTO FILM FESTIVAL WILL BE PLAYING AT HORIZONS UNLIMITED TRAVELLERS MEETINGS THIS YEAR! CHECK THE DATES AND LOCATIONS FOR AN HU EVENT NEAR YOU.

9 RULES FOR 9 MINUTES:

HAVE FUN!

No one enjoys the company of someone hellbent on making others feel uncomfortable. Be a decent person and make your mother proud.

DON’T BRAND-BASH

Someone has an opinion about your bike too. Big or small, we don’t care. See “Tell a story” for clarification if needed.

DON’T BE A MUPPET

9 minutes deserves a good effort. We can do almost anything for 9 minutes. Go on, put in some work and make it great.

FILMS ARE 9 MINUTES OR LESS

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!

TELL A STORY

A romantic recollection of highway numbers and road surfaces doesn’t make a story. Nor does the size of your bike.

THE 9MMFF IS PG13

Yes, the adults in the crowd love a dirty joke but hopefully we’ll also be inspiring the next generation of young riders.

DON’T STEAL

“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!

TRAILERS MAKETH NOT A MOVIE!

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.

INSPIRE

Perhaps most important. We make the world a better place by sharing our adventures. Own it.

FILM SELECTIONS FROM 2016:

First Prize // Positive Direction

 
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.

Second Prize // Unexpected: There from here

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.

Third Prize // Meadow Mountain Ride

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.
