Sydney Bicycle Film Festival

sponsored by City of Sydney

THE BFF AIMS TO GET MORE PEOPLE
RIDING. SIMPLE.

In 2001 Brendt Barbur started the Bicycle Film Festival (BFF) after ironically, being hit by a bus while riding his bike in New York City. He insisted on turning his negative experience into a positive one. The BFF is a global platform to celebrate local bike culture through music, art and of course, film.

The Bicycle Film Festival has been a major catalyst for the urban bike movement, one of the most powerful and culturally relevant forces of the last decade. Celebrating 10 years of promoting cycling, the 2010 Sydney BFF is sure to carry this momentum into the next decade.

This year, the International Bicycle Film Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary. The Sydney BFF is here to raise and reinforce the positive profile of cyclists to celebrate riding in all its myriad forms. The BFF provides cycling and film enthusiasts with an opportunity to enjoy films they won’t see elsewhere – films that span across bike genres, films with international scope, films made for cyclists by cyclists, films with heart, films with flair.

This festival, however, is not just about bike films – it’s about showcasing and strengthening the diverse creative communities that underpin them. Held over 5 days in November, the Sydney BFF places bikes at the centre of a sustainable, culturally creative city. The program includes a both indoor and outdoor film screenings, an art exhibition, a street fair, Cute Commute and City to Surf rides, parties, bike demonstrations, bike valet and one heck of a good time! No other event on Sydney brings the cycling community together in one week of inspiring events.
