VAHNA Magazine and Journal (formerly META Magazine) has launched the inaugural VAHNA Motorcycle Film Festival. This annual film competition celebrates the art of motorcycle cinematography and offers aspiring filmmakers a platform to showcase their unique storytelling abilities and creative vision to the world. Entries are open to any amateur filmmakers who are passionate about motorcycles and have a talent for capturing the essence of riding on film. Entries can be submitted now until September 30th. After the submission deadline, VAHNA will select 9 submissions as official 2023 Motorcycle Film Festival nominees.
"It’s really exciting to see a platform like this come together for the motorcycle industry," added Triumph Marketing Director Adam Vanderveen. "There are so many passionate riders who are also incredibly talented cinematographers and storytellers, and they deserve a place like this to showcase their work. We’re proud to be a part of this new festival from year one. We look forward to seeing all of the incredible films that will be submitted and can’t wait for the top entries to be shown in theaters across the country.”
The 10 total selected films will be shown in theaters during a 6-city US tour between October 2023 to April 2024. Tentative inaugural festival cities include Atlanta, Denver, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Portland and Austin. Each event will be open to the public with the films being voted on by guest judges in each city. The top three winners over the course of the festival tour will receive amazing prize packages with products from supporting partners with the overall winner receiving a brand new 2024 Triumph Bonneville T120.
