Bicycle Film Festival Comes to Minneapolis July 9-12

bicyclefilmfestival08.jpgThis seems much more organized than in years past, which is probably explained by the fact that, though this is the 8th year of BFF, it’s only the third year it’s played in Minneapolis.

So what the heck is a Bicycle Film Festival, anyway?

The Bicycle Film Festival celebrates the bicycle. We are into all styles of bikes and biking. If you can name it-Tall Bike Jousting, Track Bikes, BMX, Alleycats, Critical Mass, Bike Polo, Cycling to Recumbents- we’ve probably either ridden or screened it. What better way to celebrate these lifestyles than through art, film, music and performance? We bring together all aspects of bicycling together to advocate its ability to transport us in many ways. Ultimately the Fest is about having a good time.

Films will screen at eight different venues across Minneapolis, from Pi to First Avenue to the MacPhail Center. There is free valet bicycle parking at each one. You can buy a festival pass or tickets to individual shows. Complete details at

(Biking from venue to venue is also good practice for Fringe.)

    This looks really cool, and I love the poster.

    The free valet bicycle parking is the part that tickles me the most.

    I *may* be at a screening on the 10th… but I will for sure be at the afterparty at Pi that night. My friend and co-worker is one of the two featured DJs! Hooray!
