The Motor City will provide an ideal setting May 28-30, 2015, as three Detroit venues celebrate the iconic history of the automobile in a one-of-a-kind film festival, as World Class Motoring and Islay Events unveil the inaugural AutoMoto Detroit International Film & Arts Festival presented by Quicken Loans and Opportunity Detroit.

Taking place at The Fillmore Detroit, The Madison Theatre Building, Cinema Detroit, and other Midtown locations, the three-day festival will feature a packed schedule of full- and short-length films, as well as special appearances by automotive personalities, car designers and artists.

Held during the Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix, the festival will be highlighted by screenings of the Cuban street racing documentary “Havana Motor Club,” “1” the definitive story of Formula 1 and “Magnus Walker — Urban Outlaw,” the portrait of the rebel Porsche customizer.

Walker, who will be on hand to provide first-person insight about the film, will be joined by other dignitaries at the festival, including legendary Ford GT Designer Camilo Pardo.

The expanded program will also include motorcycle films, such as “Greasy Hands Preachers,” as well as “Why We Ride,” tapping into the passion of riders.
