First Italian film festival dedicated to the world of motorcycles in which creative themed works are presented and projected.
Just like motorcyclists, a symbol of freedom par excellence and sources of multiple inspirations, even the filmakers often tell the dreams, adventures and stories of centaurs from all over the world through their works.
This is why MotoTematica wants to show these works, encouraging and encouraging them to transfer their passion for motorcycles into an art form, organizing an exhibition that includes the screening of the finalist works of the competition on October 8 and 9 2022 at Casa del Cinema in Rome

Overall Rating
  • Film festivals are a niche in the entertainment segment, and the theme of this film festival is itself a niche in the niche, nevertheless the quality of the selected films was high and the location (Casa del Cinema di Roma) truly wonderful!
    I hope that this small film festival can grow in the future, also considering new partnerships with other events!

    We were honored to have our short documentary selected by MotoTematica - Rome Motorcycle Film Festival. The organizers welcomed us warmly, and the theater where the screenings took place was top-notch. The location was truly remarkable — on the grounds of Rome's Villa Borghese. Highly recommended!

    Thank you Steven. We loved your passion for motorcycles and it can be seen trough "Caffeine & Gasoline".
    Hope to have you soon in Rome

  • This Festival is awesome! If you love everything moto then this is the festival for you. The entire event is held around an incredible custom motorcycle show. There's nothing pretentious about it and Andrea and Benedetta are the most gracious hosts. We had the best time EVER and are looking forward to getting another film together just so we can hopefully be invited back.

    *If you're looking for Hollywood type hobnobbing this is not the festival for you. If you you're looking for people who LOVE motorcycles and movies and motorcycle movies passionately - THIS is your festival!
