Coming up in Cape Town this Friday (23 November) is the first Cape Town edition of the Bicycle Film Festival.
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 City. Ouch! Inspired to turn this negative experience into a positive one, he created a festival that celebrates the bicycle through music, art, and film. BFF is now a multi-faceted global event that supports a wide array of biking communities and cycling enthusiasts from all walks of life.
The festival is happening on one night only at The Labia on Orange. There are two sessions, both of which promise to be great, covering everything from hard-core bike couriers to female BMXers, those who ride against the odds and covering aspects of what goes into making a bicycle. The evening will feature 16 films from around the world and be followed by a party. Yeehaa!
