October 1–10, 2020 | Live & Virtual
We're excited to announce our plans for the 4th edition of the annual Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival. TMFF 2020 has been reimagined as a physical and online festival, spanning ten days from October 1–10, featuring live and virtual screenings, interactive audience experiences, filmmaker meet-and-greets and discussion panels.
During the first three days of the Festival, select films will be premiered live as socially-distanced screenings at the Revue Cinema. These live events are contingent on the Province's reopening guidelines with the priority being the health and well-being of both Festival filmgoers and the community.
The online component of the Festival leverages the success of TMFF Cinema screenings held over the spring and summer which proved online viability and allowed the Festival to connect with audiences beyond Toronto, reaching across Canada and the world. TMFF has partnered with Eventive, an industry-leading streaming platform for on-demand and livestream content, and over the Festival's 10 days, this platform will host the entire catalog of TMFF 2020 films online along with interactive chats and filmmaker Q&As.
The Eventive platform has native TV viewing apps for Apple TV, Roku, and Android TV, in addition to being able to watch on computers and mobile devices, giving you options for an ideal home viewing experience.
A lot has changed since last year's Festival, and things continue to be in flux making it difficult to make solid plans for the future. And while at this time we many not be able to put on a one-to-remember opening-night party with an all-brass hip-hop band, a world-class contemporary art and motorcycle gallery exhibit, or rub shoulders in a packed and sold-out theatre, we're still very much committed to bringing the community together to share the very best stories from around the world, told through the lens of motorcycling.
More details will be published over the course of the next couple of months leading up to the Festival, beginning with the announcement of this year's film lineup on August 3rd.
