AutoMoto Film & Arts Festival Opens In Detroit On May 28, 2015
Detroit, Michigan will play host to the inaugural AutoMoto Film & Arts Festival, an all-new automotive and motorcycle festival from May 28 to May 30, 2015. The event is being billed as a three-day festival that celebrates the history of automobiles and motorcycles through various artistic platforms, including artworks, films, and literature.
The AutoMoto Film Festival is the brainchild of World Class Motoring and Islay Events with the support of Quicken Loans and Opportunity Detroit. Far more than simply being a gathering of like-minded automotive and motorcycle enthusiasts, the event is being described as an opportunity for attendees to immerse themselves to a different level of passion and understanding of the history of cars and bikes in the US. Rhere’s no more ideal setting to have this event than the Motor City, widely considered as the birthplace of automobiles in the country.
Motorcycles, in particular, will have a prominent spot in the festival as screenings of critically acclaimed films like “Why We Ride”, “Greasy Hands Preachers”, and “Havana Motor Club” are already stamped in the schedule. The films will be screened in a handful of venues throughout the city, including the The Filmore Detroit, Cinema Detroit, and the world famous Madison Theatre Building.
More programs, films, and events are also being prepared in time for the opening of the festival so you better keep your eyes and ears open for any developments.

Why it matters
It’s a beautiful thing to bring this kind of attraction to Detroit, Michigan. I live far away from the city, or the country for that better, so I won’t be able to take in the experience first-hand. That’s tough luck for me but really, what am I supposed to do? When geography makes it a problem it becomes a real problem.
Fortunately, the event is still expected to attract thousands of people. That’s usually indicative of something new or unexpected happening.
For what its worth, the inaugural AutoMoto Film & Arts Festival has the potential to become a resounding success, especially if all parties involved create an inviting atmosphere, not only for fans of cars and motorcycles, but fans of films, art, and literature, too.
