WORLD PREMIERE FOR GLASGOW – EXCLUSIVE DOUBLE BILL OF "SEASONS" AND "HOME" WEDNESDAY MAY 21ST 8.15PM

To coincide with the Glasgow screening of "Seasons" on Wednesday May 21st at the GFT www.gft.org , the Glasgow International Bike Film Festival is delighted to announce the WORLD PREMIERE of "HOME", the eagerly awaited feature from the creator of "Downhill Racer Race Guide", Mark Huskisson.

Filmed entirely on location, "Home" is a film about discovery, about family and friends. It's a glimpse into the lives of people who feel at home on their bikes, at the passion that drives these different and varied characters, these racers and trail riders. "Home" isn't just a physical space it's a place where worldly cares fade and riding mountain bikes becomes your life. This film not only captures Scotland's stunning landscape, it captures the spirit of the place and of the people. Featuring reigning Junior World Downhill Champion, Ruaraidh Cunningham and trials phenomenon, Daniel Macaskill, Home is a must see for bike fans and film fans alike.

Tickets can be pre booked by phoning the Box Office on 0141 332 6535. Ticket sales have been brisk so patrons are advised to pre book in advance to secure entry on the night. The screening on the 21st of May in Glasgow will be the only opportunity to see "Home" and "Seasons" together on the big screen.

NEW DATES:

Following the sell out of the Bristol screening scheduled for the 30th of May, Cube cinema in Bristol have announced a second date for Seasons and Roam. The date is the evening of Sunday 1st June 2008 at 8pm.

Tickets will go on sale at the start of next week and can be bought from Cube's usual outlets (here) or by going online to www.cyclesurgery.com

In association with WWW.CYCLESURGERY.COM

Dates have been announced for Stirling, Edinburgh, Bristol and Aberdeen. Tickets for

In addition, dates for Inverness and Newcastle screenings in July will be announced on www.thecollectivefilm.com in the next few days.

MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK:

When the tour was planned, it was expected that "Seasons" would run for some 40 minutes. However, The Collective have amassed such great footage over the last year that the running time of Seasons is now a full 60 minutes of their trademark mix of stunning riding, great cinematography and a sublime soundtrack. With so much footage to edit, they’ve not had time to complete their short 5 minute making of documentary as planned for the UK Premiere. However, when you see Seasons on the big screen, you’ll agree that the extra footage more than makes up for it!

SPECIAL GUEST FOR SHEFFIELD SCREENING:

One of the stars of "Seasons" will be in attendance at the Sheffield screening on Tuesday 10th June in the Showroom cinema. If things go to plan, he may even be willing to answer questions from the audience after the film! We don't want to give the game away just yet but you may be able to guess who it is!

and WWW.HEASON.NET

A BIT MORE ABOUT SEASONS

In 2004, The Collective released the self-titled film, The Collective. The film went on to win several prestigious awards and quickly became recognised by mountain bikers around the world as the film that the mountain bike world had been waiting for.

In 2006, their second film, Roam, was released to even greater critical and commercial success. The film played to a series of sell
out cinema screening throughout the UK.

Now in 2008, The Collective are back with their eagerly anticipated third feature, "Seasons".
