Bikes have featured prominently in some of the most iconic moments in movie history, so it only seems appropriate that a festival of film be devoted to the humble cycle.
The Bicycle Film Festival got its beginning after the founder, New Yorker Brendt Barbur after he was hit by a bus whilst cycling in the city. Barbur decided to turn this experience into something positive and the idea for the Bicycle Film Festival was born.
Now in its 12th year, the BFF travels on a worldwide and is kicking off the 12th annual event at London’s Barbican on the 4th October. The BFF has provided a platform for the urban bike movement, celebrating bikes through music, art and film. If you’re a keen cyclist and a budding filmmaker, you can also submit your own film by April 1st, and who knows, your reel of creativity could be being shown where alumni such as Spike Jonze and Mike Mills have shown before.
