The Big Bike Film Night
- Friday, 27 April, 7:30pm ENCORE
We’re returning to Alex with the Big Bike Film Night 2017 collection for those folks that missed out.
Ready to whet the appetite of bike lovers, New Zealand’s premier bike-themed short film fest is back with a new collection of short movies that have everything cycling fans could want — action, drama, plenty of humour and even a hint of romance — its going to be BIKE_ALICIOUS
“We’re sharing the best cycling short films from around the world with you.” Curator Brett Cotter
“Absolutely brilliant night full of variety, from much hilarity, to wow, to educational to inspiring.” James ‘Geeza’ Alexander
Spinning some wheels with an impressive lineup that includes a stylish look at London’s bike sub-cultures, the remarkable story of an American Bike Frame Builder; an absorbing attempt and challenge of cycling up the gruelling 1912 metre peak Mount Ventoux, and two very different faces of BMX, with contrasting stories and styles.
We also have the homegrown ‘Muscles and Dreams’ documentary, which follows a bunch of good keen men transforming an idea for a gold miner’s road from the 1800’s into New Zealand’s longest continuous single-track — The Old Ghost Road on the West Coast.
At the heart of this collection is showing real people being part of some pretty extra-ordinary stories. It’s going to be bike-alicious!
