Left to right, top to bottom: Oil in the Blood, Blenio, Utah, WAYNE, Fast and Left
Earlier this month we announced the 17 new films that we'll be screening at this year's Festival. Highlights include the North American Premiere of WAYNE by award-winning New Zealand producer Fraser Brown (McLaren) and Australian director Jeremy Sims, that recounts the incredible life of Wayne Gardner who went from a $5 dirt bike to Moto GP World Champion; Gareth Maxwell Robert's Oil in the Blood, the first documentary feature film to catalog the builders, riders and artists of the contemporary custom motorcycle culture; and Alberto Bernad Vidal and Patrick Botticchio's heart-warming and humble Blenio, Utah that reflects on the dream of a butcher from a small 800-person Swiss village, who despite not having any experience, aims to set a new land-speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

In addition, this year's lineup boasts 10 World Premieres including Crown Land by Canadian director-duo The Fellas; Evan H. Senn's ode to the community of flat track racers Fast and Left; and Jean Pierre Kathoefer's heart-tugging The Distinguished Gentleman about the power of community who came together in the face of hardship when one of its members suffered burns to over 40% of his body and nearly ending his life
