After winning the Best Feature Film Award in New York at the 2015 Motorcycle Film Festival (Sept 23-27th, 2015), Dream Racer is now being nominated at the 2016 Portland Motorcycle Film Festival (Jan 29-30th).
This festival is packed with great films including Moto 7 featuring the best Motocross and Supercross riders in the world, the IOM TT – a legendary 37.7 mile race on the Isle of Man, and the new Hitting the Apex Film narrated by Brad Pitt featuring world’s champs Jorge Lorenzo, Marc Marquez, Dani Pedrosa, Valentino Rossi, Casey Stoner, as well as the late Marco Simoncelli.
“We are excited to showcase a different kind of extreme racing with Dream Racer and the Dakar Rally – and to be against such great productions is an honour. However Dream Racer is a case of David against Goliath(s) in every sense of the word, but we trust that the depth of the Dream Racer story will win the heart of the audience” says Christophe Barriere-Varju (the subject of the film).
Dream Racer won awards in Los Angeles, Barcelona, New Delhi, Milan, and New York, and has been internationally acclaimed by its viewers worldwide (read testimonials).
The Dream Racer story is based on the famous Dakar Rally, the most extreme and dangerous race on earth where racers brave extreme temperature in the harshest deserts on the planet. A 15 days, 10,000km (6,200 miles) desert race dubbed insanity on wheels where each year since 1979, and with an attrition rate of 50%, racers facing injuries and death attempt the impossible.
The Dream Racer film shows The Dakar Rally in its purest form – no sponsors, no multi-million dollar team, not even a mechanic – just one man, a motorbike, his tool-roll, and the world’s most dangerous motor race. Far more than just a motorbike movie, Dream Racer is a call to arms for anyone who has ever dreamt of doing anything – a spine tingling antidote to the fear of life passing you by unfulfilled.
All of us have dreams and desires, but sometimes they remain just that, dreams, lost in a schedule of a tomorrow that never comes. Dream Racer is a story of dreams, determination, and extreme resilience to make it happen at all cost – a story guaranteed to make you question your real purpose in life.
Dream Racer has also been subtitled in Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, German and Russian and is available for acquisition by TV Networks. Dream Racer is available worldwide on DVD, Blu-Ray, and Video-on-Demand at www.dreamracer.tv
