While I was away eating fondue and opening secret bank accounts, I missed a load of important emails and news items. The Seasons screening dates was one of them, apologies if you’ve already read it somewhere else, I know you do go somewhere else sometimes…I don’t like it when you go somewhere else… I’d really like you to stay here with me…maybe we need to sit down and talk this one through?
Here’s the news then:
The Collective – First dates announced for the forthcoming UK cinema tour of “Seasons”, the eagerly awaited third feature from The Collective.
The Glasgow International Bike Film Festival – On Tour have teamed up with The Collective, several UK bike shops and independent cinemas in the UK to bring their eagerly awaited third feature, “Seasons” onto the big screen in a series of special one night only screenings prior to it’s release on DVD.
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”.
Following seven of the worlds top mountain bikers through the course of the four seasons of the year, “Seasons” brings cinematic grandeur to the genre of mountain bike films. From the heat of competition downhill racing to riders ripping singletrack against the backdrop of a summer sunset, “Seasons” is a must see for film fans and bike fans alike. The film stars the biggest names in mountain biking including former UCI World Cup Downhill Champion Steve Peat.

Quote from organiser ” I’m delighted to have teamed up with The Collective and several independent bike shops throughout the UK to present “Seasons” as part of a major tour of independent UK cinemas. Organising the sell out Scottish Premiere of Roam was the catalyst for the Glasgow International Bike Film Festival so I’m hoping that by organising a UK tour of “Seasons”, the audience will get the opportunity to see these great films where they belong on the big screen” David Gould, Festival Director, Glasgow International Bike Film Festival
