Follow Me, the first mountain bike movie from Anthill Films, is one of the mostly hotly anticipated releases of the year, and a UK and Ireland cinema tour has just been announced.
The film stars downhillers Gee Atherton, Sam Hill, Brendan Fairclough and Steve Smith, plus freeriders Darren Berrecloth, Ben Boyko, Geoff Gulevich, Matt Hunter, Cam McCaul, Brandon Semenuk, Kurt Sorge and Thomas Vanderham.
From the team behind The Collective, Roam and Seasons, it covers everything from backyard sessions and local trails to epic road trips and heli drops, and features the unique perspectives and HD imagery the crew are famous for.
The tour kicks off with the European cinema premiere at the Glasgow Film Theatre on Tuesday 27 April, where Follow Me will be shown as a double bill feature with Seasons. This will be the first ever HD screening of a mountain bike film in Europe.
After that, the tour will visit locations across the UK and Ireland, with screenings of Follow Me being shown with either The Collective or Seasons depending on the venue. Dates already confirmed are listed below, with new dates being added daily.
