Film festivals like Cannes, Deauville, Venice, Sundance etc are all nice, but they always miss something. Usually they have good movies being shown, but for us bikers, unless it's something like Hell Ride, we quickly loose interest.
But that changes now. We now have our own film festival. The Adventure Travel Film Festival , held in the USA and UK, and hosted by Austin Vince and Lois Pryce will show you during a fun weekend all sorts of adventure travel documentaries and movies.
Unlike high-brow events like Cannes, with red carpets, 5 star hotels and limousines, this event is held on a camping ground, and you'll be sleeping in tents. If you want a red carpet, bring it yourself.
In the USA, the event takes place on Friday 1st to Sunday the 3rd of April, and the location is the Amado Territory Ranch, Amado, Santa Cruz County, Arizona 85645, USA.
In the UK, it's from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th June 2011 at Knapp House, Churchill Way, Bideford, Devon, EX39 1NT, UK.
If you don't want to camp, there are hotels and B&B's around.
Apart from several films being shown, there are also workshops for aspiring RTWRound The World riders. The event is not only for motorcycle riders, since you'll also find a portion of four wheels, but that should be okay.
Movies shows are: Cycles South (1971), Motosyberia (2007), One Man Caravan (1933), Riding Solo to the Top of the World (2006) and The Rugged Road (1935)
Different pricing options exist, depending on what you want. With or without meals, just 2 days worth, camping, etc.
