    Calgary film festival - June 10 & 11

    From the press release:

    On June 10 - 11, 2009 the Calgary Freeride Mountain Bike film festival will be screening
    four of this year's hottest films at the Plaza Theatre. Barred for Life and Break the Cycle
    are showing on June 10. The Freedom Riders and The Tipping Point are showing on
    June 11.

    Day 1 of the film festival premieres two films. Showing on June 10, Barred For Life, the
    latest film by BC filmmaker Bjorn Aunet, was filmed in Norway, Utah, and British
    Columbia. Barred for Life will get anyone ready for a great riding season after a long
    Calgary winter.

    Also premiering June 10, is the Irish downhill film, Break the Cycle. This film features ten
    of the best riders in Ireland. Filled with amazing Irish scenery, great riding, and an
    amazing soundtrack, Break the Cycle (pre-release version) will pull you from the theatre
    right to the trail.

    Day 2 of the film festival showcases two more films. The Freedom Riders is a
    documentary about a core group of riders who set out to build illicit downhill trails in the
    Teton mountains. After an eight-year battle with the Forestry service, an official trail
    system is in place, for the exclusive use of downhill riders.

    Also premiering June 11 is The Tipping Point, the latest film from Clay Porter (Between
    the Tape and F1RST). The Tipping Point features the 2008 World Cup Downhill series
    and championships. The Tipping Point shows the World Cup Downhill circuit in all itís

    The films are showing at the Plaza Theatre (1133 Kensington Road NW, Calgary, AB)
    June 10 and 11. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door (ticket prices are per
    night). Tickets can be purchased in advance at Ridley's Cycle (223 10 St NW, Calgary,
    AB) and the The Bike Shop (801 11 Ave SW, Calgary, AB). Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
    both nights and the films start at 7:00 p.m.

    Fifty percent of the profits from the Calgary showing of the films will be donated to Right
    to Play an international humanitarian organization that uses sport and play programs to
    improve health, develop life skills, and foster peace for children and communities in
    some of the most disadvantaged areas of the world.

    Four great mountain bike films and tons of door prizes, two nights that should not be
