Bicycle Film Festival

courtesy Bicycle Film Festival Film Still "Cross Dressed" Dir. Jamie Francis and Rob Finch
A three-day celebration of cycling containing a strong array of shorts and premieres. It's a wide-ranging programme that should provide something of interest for whatever kind of cyclist you are –'Shay Elliot: Cycle of Betrayal', for example chronicles the life of Ireland's first professional cyclist, Shay Elliott, using extensive archival footage from the 1950s and 60s; 'Spoke Folk: An Anthropological Study of the Austin Cycling Community' is Caleb B Kuntz's revelatory short about Austin's maniacal cycling community, and Morgan Bertacca's 'Bikes, Bread and Wine: L'eroica' looks at the history of the classic Italian retro bike race. There's heaps more: see the website for full details.
