This years BICYCLE FILM FESTIVAL will begin on Thursday, May 12!

The opening night features the world premiere of a film about the Critical Mass crackdown in NYC titled, Still We Ride! If you watch closely you can see me getting pawed and zip-cuffed by New York's "Finest"!

This years festival once again features many films with a messenger theme from the US and abroad. Friday the 13th will be the World Premiere of Messenger, and feature films by Lucas Brunelle, The Black Label Bicycle Club, and many, many others!

Saturday, May 14, features begin with a bicycle parade starting at 1pm, followed by a professional trials demo and street party with more fixed-gear wildness such as skid competition, sprints, and much more. A wide variety of films will be shown all day, including another world premiere - Joe Kid on a Stingray - The History of BMX. A special program at 7pm of the crazyiest messenger shorts, followed later in the evening by the latest mountain bike films with a variety of styles, stars and directors. Not to be missed!

Sunday, May 15, is another entire day of films and events starting at noon with BMX and flatland special films, and moving into a variety of bicycle films from all around the world, and throughout history. Sunday night features some classics, such as A Sunday in Hell (1973), and some films that are sure to be classics, such as the cyclocross masterpiece - Pure Sweet Hell.

My little summary does not do justice to the amazing number of films and events that are going to be going down this weekend. For a complete schedule and ticket info check out: http://www.bicyclefilmfestival.com/dev/index.html
