The Amelia Motoring Film Exhibition was the newest event to join Amelia Concours weekend in 2017 – and we are happy to report the event sold out. Thanks to MonroneyLabels.com, Chassy Media, VintageAutoTV.com and organizer Popcorn Octane Productions, it was a casual evening of auto-centric movies that drew film buffs and car aficionados alike.
Featured films included Adam Carolla’s “The 24 Hour War” which chronicles the FORD vs. FERRARI battle in the 1960’s at Le Mans, Guy Smith’s “The Red Grifo”, a documentary that recounts a family’s multigenerational influence of a rare automobile welded high Italian design together with American muscle to form one of the most desirable gran touring cars of all time, the Iso Grifo. Rounding out the trio was Peugeot’s “Climb Dance”, a very short but high-octane film featuring Peugeot’s winning runs at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb in the late 1980’s.
The event was off to a great start as the Hagerty’s Amelia or Bust Rally 2017 Tour participants rolled in to the parking lot for a special display. Noted collector and author Tom Cotter and Sports Car Market Magazine Founder Keith Martin, among others at the sell-out event enjoyed social reception with popcorn, drinks, and shrimp and grits before adjourning to the old Florida theatre to enjoy three incredible films. Plan to kick off your 2018 Amelia Island trip by attending this event. More details soon!
