Last spring weekend, April 29 and 30, Gatchina hosted an unusual opening of the motorcycle season with a four-hour outdoor concert, an exciting motorcycle race and a two-day motorcycle film festival. The place was not chosen by chance - it was in Gatchina that one of the first motorcycle races in Russia took place.
The festival was organized by the Gatchina branch of one of the largest and most enterprising motorcycle clubs in the former USSR - THE HOOLIGANS MC, which has been successfully operating for 18 years.
The participants sent more than a hundred professional and amateur films to the festival, one way or another related to motorcycles, and the film review united residents of Russia, Belarus, Germany, the Czech Republic, Sweden, Estonia and other countries.
The jury that evaluated the works included such famous and interesting people as: actor and musician Alexander Ustyugov, leader of the Pilot group Ilya "Damn" Knabenhof, soloist of the Semantic Hallucinations group Sergei Bobunets, director Kirill Kapitsa and other representatives of the St. environment.
The organizers proudly announced the winners in four categories: “Motor Club Films”, “Professional Cinema”, “Moto Travel Videos” and, of course, “For Humor”.
About the ideology of the “THE HOOLIGANS MC” club itself, its president Evgeny Putilin says this: “We live as we see fit. Honor and dignity are not national attributes.”
Next year, the organizers plan to increase both the scale of the festival, inviting dozens of other motorcycle clubs and others who wish, and the geography of participants, divided geographically, but united by a common passion - motorcycles.
