The Bicycle Film Festival was founded in 2001 in New York City when founding Festival Director, Brendt Barbur, was hit by a bus while riding his bike. Barbur turned the negative experience into a positive platform which celebrates cycling through film, music, and art. During this 10th Anniversary of the Festival, over 35 cities around the world are participating with their own local BFF. Festival hoppers (those traveling from festival to festival), will find a number of quality Boston Hotels near the event venues.
The Bicycle Film Festival: Boston will run September 23-25. Fourth Wall Project kicks off the event on Thursday the 23rd with the Boston Area Handbuilt Exhibition featuring bikes, art, music, and beer. This Bikes-Rock-Art Show will be held at the Fourth Wall Project space on Brookline Ave.
Friday and Saturday will feature screenings of short and longer form films that celebrate bicycles, their riders, and the cycling experience at the Brattle Theater in Cambridge as well as After Parties in Boston (Friday) and Jamaica Plain (Saturday). Films include The Birth of Big Air, Riding the Long White Cloud, and the Cyclecross Meeting. Details and festival passes are available at the BFF Boston site.
