Moviefilm For Theatres

Back in 2004, a group of photogaphers, filmakers, and mountain bikers turned the cycling world on its collective ear with the release of the film, “The Collective.” In many ways, it was a first in cycling cinema. Not only was it the first mountain bike feature shot completely on 16mm, but some argue that it was the first that truly captured the spirit of “flow” that one can only experience behind the controls of a proper cycle on singletrack. I tend to agree. The guys at The Collective are at it again.

The much anticipated follow-up to the 2006 film “Roam” will premiere this month. “Seasons” follows top progressive riders Thomas Vanderham, Matt Hunter, Andrew Shandro, Steve Peat, Steve Smith, Cam McCaul, and Darren Berrecloth over the course of four seasons in one year. The film explores what it means to be a full time rider as told through the lives of downhill racers, slopestyle competitors, and big mountain freeriders.

The premiere at the Sea Otter Classic will take place at the Monterey Conference Centre on Friday April 18th. There will be two shows: a pre-drunk screening at 6:30pm, and a while-drunk show at 9:30. If you’re going to be on the peninsula for Sea Otter, this should be a mandatory stop.
