Toronto Motorcycle Film Fest  Sept 27-30, 2018 | Screening narrative and documentary films from around the world that feature motorcycles and motorcycle culture. #tmff

"For me, that frame is like a painting. If you put it up on a wall and someone said it was by Caravaggio, no one would bat an eyelid. It looks like it should be in an art gallery." -- Craig McCall on Jack Cardiff's masterful cinematography.
.
Today marks what would have been Jack Cardiff's 104th birthday. You may know him as the director of Girl on a Motorcycle, but his roster of credits includes: Black Narcissus, The African Queen, The Prince and Showgirl, The Barefoot Contessa, War and Peace, Conan the Destroyer, Rambo First Blood to name just a few.
.
This Oscar winner is regarded as one of the best colour cinematographers in the world, able to dramatically mix light and shadow in ways that painted some of the most beautiful film scenes ever shot.

Marc Provencher on how the NO HIGHWAY stream of consciousness narrative came to be.
.
"I realized in one point in my life that it’s hard for men to ask for help or to show [their] sensitivity. When we did No Highway, we had no clue that it was going to go there, that it was going to be the spirit of the film (...)
.
When I came back, Virgil started the camera rolling and started to ask me some questions, “What were you thinking when you were rolling with your bike?” I don’t know why, but he had some questions that hit me right through my heart and suddenly I was in my helmet, I was on my trip and I did realize that I was thinking about all of those things." (TMFF Talks)

Warren: These brakes, they're completely inadequate.
Burt Munro: I'm planning on going, not stopping.
.
Today in 2005, The World's Fastest Indian was released in it's home country, New Zealand. Interestingly, the film had it's world premiere at TIFF about a month before.
.
If you haven't seen this movie before, add it to your must watch list. It's a great moto-themed movie full of the human spirit and hope.

"These woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep." -- Robert Frost.
.
In the TMFF Best Short Narrative winner, THE FROZEN FEW, Director Stephen Marino brilliantly combines Robert Frost's famous poem, Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening, and John Coltrane's blues jazz standard, Equinox, with motorcycles and snow to create a beautifully artful film.
.
Notice the incredible attention paid to the set decor, clothing, camera movement, and perhaps, even an homage to a classic Keystone Kops moment - all of which sets the mood in this wonderful film which, according to one of our Judges, "would make Leonard Cohen proud."

Directors Brian Walsh and Ethan Vara's film TRANSCEND spotlighted the diversity of motorcycling in New England with some of the most incredible visuals. What a great film to end the Festival with. Looking forward to many great things from this duo.

Marc Provencher and the NO HIGHWAY team were up on stage for their post film Q&A and a question came in from the audience from none other than Oliver Solaro (AKA BROKENTOOTH). On recognizing him, Marc shouted "oh my God!" and got so excited he JUMPED off the stage to shake Oliver's hand. It was an amazing moment. ❤
