Returning film festival pleases movie buffs and auto enthusiasts alike with a slate of high- octane automotive films and displays on Thursday March 8 to rev-up the Amelia Concours weekend
AMELIA ISLAND, FL. Last year, the Amelia Motoring Film Exhibition proved to be a smash hit, injecting some cinematic horsepower into Concours weekend. The 2018 installment looks to up the ante with a slew of films and shorts that celebrate the art of the automobile.
Presenting sponsor MonroneyLabels.com and Popcorn Octane Productions have assembled a cinematic tour de force with the 2018 installment. This year films include “Endurance Icon: Hurley Haywood” a short film that highlights the American racing legend and a few of the cars that helped catapult him, Peter Gregg, and Brumos Porsche into endurance racing fame. The feature presentation will be “No Limits – Impossible is Just a Word,” which takes viewers on an emotional journey alongside ex-Formula 1 driver, two-time Indy Car champion and Paralympic gold-medalist Alex Zanardi as he prepares for one of the most famous endurance races in the world: The 24 Hours of Spa.
“We were thrilled to be a part of last year’s inaugural Amelia Motoring Film Exhibition and see what a fantastic addition it was the excitement of Concours weekend,” said Ned Nielsen of MonroneyLabels.com. “Our second annual event looks to continue that tradition of giving automotive enthusiasts an evening of film they won’t forget.”
Of course, the Amelia Motoring Film Exhibition will also give automotive aficionados a few more ways to get into the Concours spirit as it kicks off the weekend. Before the show begins, the exhibition will wave the checkered flag on the Hagerty Touring Series – Amelia Island or Bust Edition rally. Participating vehicles will be on display for the evening, giving guests a chance to get up close and personal with these marvelous machines.
And fans of Hagerty’s popular “Barn Find Hunter” won’t want to miss a special appearance by host Tom Cotter, who will be on hand to present one of his latest episodes.
“Creating this film festival has been a blast. There’s so much to celebrate when it comes to the art of the automobile and the culture that revolves around motoring, and so many fantastic films that embody that spirit,” said event organizer Guy Smith of Popcorn Octane Productions. “We were delighted at the response we received to last year’s event and can’t wait to top that excitement this year.”
