Sixth Annual Bicycle Film Festival comes to Minneapolis

minnBFF_front.jpgNext week the Sixth Annual Bicycle Film Festival makes its Midwest debut in Minneapolis, July 6-8. Promoters claim it’s “the largest bicycle related cultural event in the country” — highlighting shorts and feature films that celebrate the bicycle in all its various forms and styles. Submissions for this year’s BFF came from over 15 countries, including Iran, Mexico, Ghana, Canada and the U.S.

Screenings take place at Riverview Theater (3800 42nd Ave. S) on July 6th, Bell Museum Auditorium (10 Church St. SE) on July 7th, and The Soap Factory (2nd Street SE) on July 8th, including “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure!!!”

There’s a post-screening party on Friday, and Saturday promises an alleycat (messenger-style race), track stand competition, various track events and bike activities during the day. Download the program here (pdf). Pretty good for $7.

SPECIAL NOTE: Complimentary valet bike parking is available at all screenings. Yes!

After the Minneapolis debut, the BFF will travel to six other cities: Chicago (August), London (September), San Francisco (October), Sydney (October), Tokyo (November) and Milan (December). More info here.

    I’m super interested to go, if only to have my bike valet parked.

    Sorry about rehashing something you already wrote about Greg. I was searching back through entries, and didn’t search back quite far enough. Alas.
