A Local Festival for The Fowler Formula!

CGIFF Laurels

I’m excited to announce that we’ll be screening at a local festival, the Columbia Gorge International Film Festival, on August 13.

The festival screens films at ten theaters around Vancouver, Washington from August 10 to 14. The schedule isn’t final yet but we’ll be sure to let everyone know when we are assigned a screening time.

I hope we can get some vintage bikes to show up for this screening. It would be fun to make our presence known. Stay tuned for more details.

Orlando Film Festival

We screened at the Orlando Film Festival in November. We actually screened on my birthday, which made it kind of the best birthday ever.

We met a bunch of really incredibly talented filmmakers in Orlando and spent a lot of time hanging out with them. Alex Gaynor (Wid Winner and the Slipstream), Doron Kipper (Misdirection), Vincent Lin (Chase Thompson: A Film by Chase Thompson), Russ Senzatimore (We Follow the Rules), Brant Hadfield (The Last Legend), Susan Hippen (Me, Myself & Your Husband), Shawn McDaniels & Ray Gaillard (I Remember) — they all put out great films and I was lucky to meet them.

The best surprise of all was Norm. It was also Norm’s birthday. He’s a huge fan of Honda motorcycles and decided his present should be coming to see my film. He and his wife drove a couple hours to come to Orlando. He even brought a pair of CB160s that we got to check out after the screening. So very cool. Thanks, Norm.

The First Annual LA Motorcycle Film Festival

LA Motorcycle Film Festival posterIn October I had the chance to screen The Fowler Formula at the first Los Angeles Motorcycle Film Festival. Fortunately, I was able to head down to LA for the day. It was truly awesome.

It was by far the biggest crowd of motorcycle fans to see the film. And the location at the Cretins’ rooftop clubhouse in downtown LA was fantastic.

They screened all kinds of motorcycle-related stuff, from on-board race footage to trailers of motorcycle features to Monica Surrena’s excellent USC thesis film King of the Road.¬†Proceeds from the event went to Riders for Health, a wonderful charity that helps ensure that health care workers in Africa have reliable transportation so they can reach remote communities.

Everyone seemed to have a great time. I think they’ve started something very cool and I’m looking forward to year 2.
