Bicycle Film Festival

The 10th annual Bicycle Film Festival is in San Francisco this weekend.

Here is an article form the San Francisco Chronicle about festival director Brendt Barbur and 10 years showcasing bike movies.
Bicycle Film Festival founding director Brendt Barbur can smell NYC, wants to sing.

The idea for the Bicycle Film Festival festival came to founding director Brendt Barbur while he was recuperating from being doored in New York City back in 2000.

Ten years later, the fest pulls in about 300,000 people, and screening venues run the gamut, from the Barbican in London to a Seattle art gallery.

The festival hits San Francisco this week, and the movies will show in two venues: Mission Workshop at 40 Rondel St. and the old-timey Victoria Theater on 16th Street. The films screen on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and various pre- and after-parties happen throughout the run, including a Kick Off Party on Wednesday at the Knock Out at 3223 Mission. The Kick Off party is free, and several DJs start the turntablism at 9 pm.
