Bicycle Film Festival

The traveling event showcasing two wheels on film, now accepting submissions for 2011


The Bicycle Film Festival is back for its eleventh year. Started in 2001 by Brendt Barbur after a bus hit him while riding his bike in NYC, the event invites films across all genres and styles as long as it contains a bike-related theme. The program will travel to over 25 cities this year including New York, Paris, Liverpool and Milan. Check out the trailer for this year’s festival—a true representation of the global scope of the fest and bike culture—below.

Not just for cinephiles, the BFF also includes rock shows, street parties, art shows, dinners, bike rides and more. You are guaranteed to see some fantastic work ranging from drama to documentary, as well as to learn about new artists and see work from some big names. (Spike Jonze produced one of the documentaries last year.) Submission is free so get your films in by 1 April 2011 to be considered.
