THE SECOND annual Biker Film Festival in Ružomberok welcomed a special guest this year, Marian Illéš, the festival’s organiser, told the SITA newswire.

Nick Sanders, a British biker who holds several world records for long-distance rides, arrived with his wife and three children.

The festival screened 22 films from 10 countries, Illéš said. The accompanying programme included a discussion with some young men from Banská Bystrica who had filmed their trip to Kazakhstan on small-capacity motorbikes. Sanders showed some of his movies and signed autographs. There was also an exhibition and lecture by a doctor who works for the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service and an exhibition on Japanese and German motorbikes.

The festival’s winning movies were Cuban Harlistas by Vieri Nissim (Italy); Parallel World 3 by Nick Sanders; The Tough One by Jeff Pakosta (US); Beyond the Border: Riding Solo in Mexico by Sterling Noren (US); and Veľká cesta malých strojov (The Big Trip on Small Machines) by the young riders from Banská Bystrica.
