A message from Brendt Barbur, of the
Bicycle Film Festival.
We have a couple of announcements.
1. CALL FOR ENTRIES
2. New York Dates
2. KICKSTARTER for THE COMMENTATOR
1.Calling all filmmakers to submit their films
to the BFF. The due date is April 1.
2.BFF New York dates for June 27- July1!
Please come out and enjoy. There will be folks in New York from
all over the world.
3.Have you seen one of the greatest cycling films ever
made? A SUNDAY IN HELL was made in 1976.
We are making a movie very last minute thirty years later about the Paris Roubaix race in France April 8.
Stefan Ruiz and Albert Maysles are shooting the film along with Patrick Trefz and Brian Vernor. I am directing. Legendary filmmaker Jorgen Leth who helped popularize the race with his film A SUNDAY IN HELL will be our main character. The rest of the cast are the fans, racers, and the race itself. The over 150 mile race course across the french landscape is our set. This will all be lightly topped off by a musical score by Blonde Redhead. And Rebekah Maysles and Stefan Ruiz and I are making a book about it too.
If 700 people get behind it
with $10- $50 or so we will make our goal.
Please check it out and let us know what you think?
Any support is really appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
