Although I am away this week with the family in Cape Cod,
You should definitely go to:
Bicycle Film Festival-New York City-2012
Anthology Film Archives
2nd and 2nd New York
From the festival:
This is THE SUMMER OF BIKES in New York City! And the BFF is back!
BICYCLE FILM FESTIVAL WORLD TOUR commences in New York for its 12th consecutive year!!
Bicycle Film Festival launches in New York and then will continue to Helsinki, Moscow, Istanbul, Hong Kong, London,
Buenos Aires, Milano and more than 20 other cities.
The film programming this year is stellar. The shorts programs are hugely popular and are not to be missed.
Feature film highlights include the world premiere of the feature length LINE OF SIGHT (Dir. Benny Zenga) by legendary cycling cinematographer Lucas Brunelle, and SHAY ELLIOT: CYCLE OF BETRAYAL (Dir. Martin Dwan) about Ireland’s first professional cyclist and the incredible events surrounding his career and life.
A little history:
In 2001 Brendt Barbur, Founding Director, was compelled to start the Bicycle Film Festival after being hit by a bus while riding his bike in New York. He was inspired to turn this negative experience into a positive one, and created a festival that celebrates the bicycle through music, art, and film. The festival merges many creative communities, including fashion, music and art, as well as various bicycling communities – road cycling, city biking, fixed gear, BMX, cyclocross – over a shared passion for bike riding.
