On October 24, 2021 BDR held its “Keep It 100” Film Festival & Fundraiser. The online broadcast showcased a selection of the best 100-second films submitted by the BDR community to the 2021 Film Festival, as well as featured films from established adventure motorcycle filmmakers.

We are thrilled to announce that the BDR community raised over $120,000 to support the BDR mission of creating and preserving riding opportunities for adventure motorcyclists.

We are grateful to all donors – big and small – who have contributed generously to our annual campaign!

BDR would also like to thank those who put in the time and effort into creating and submitting their film. We found them all inspiring and entertaining, and are excited to feature most of the films submitted to the Film Festival on this page.

The Film Festival Judges Panel consisting of our media partners – ADV Moto Magazine, UpshiftOnline and ADVPulse, and BDR Filmmaker Sterling Noren, have selected the Film Festival Winner.


Brent Pearson, a rider from Australia, took home the grand prize with his film “The Idaho BDR”


The Award went to Ed Miller (Slow Eddie) for his film, “A BDR Dream.”
