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

    Exceptional Film Festival, celebrating and supporting film makers. A very considered film selection for the audience, capturing the wide motorcycling scene. Apart from the stunning venue, the organisation and communication was excellent. Thank you Benedetta and the team at MotoTematica for providing a platform for film makers to show their work.

  • Awesome to have film festivals dedicated to motorcyclism. A passion for so many around the globe that must be shared. MotoTematica is one of the most important catalyst of the theme. In the land of great machines like Ducati, Aprilia, Mv Agusta, it is an honor to be selected and participate the festival.

  • 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!
