This event has passed.

The 20th Anniversary of Bicycle Film Festival is going virtual. BFF is back virtually on November 27th hosted by Hester Street Fair!


Bicycle Film Festival has been celebrating bicycles through art, film and music the last 20 years. The physical BFF spanned the world in over 90 cities worldwide to an audience of over one million people. The festival has an incredible history of working with the most important artists, filmmakers, venues, and institutions around the world. BFF Downtown is presenting an international selection of short films.

Downtown Program will appeal to a wide audience from film connoisseurs to avid cyclists and everything in between. Let the BFF curated collection of short films take you on a journey around the world as we learn about a charismatic Ghanian immigrant in Amsterdam who teaches refugee adult women to ride bikes - experience a birds-eye view of a BLM bicycle protest ride from New York to DC - feel the anguish of a father's loss - the struggle of a young woman and her bike in Iran - and reprieve from genocide through cycle sport. BFF Select Shorts never fail to uplift and inspire.

*Residents outside of New York can purchase tickets and enjoy the films. How does the virtual Bicycle Film Festival work? A ticket available allows you to view the 90-minute short film format any time now through Sunday, January 10th at 11:59PM streamed to your computer, tablet, or smart TV by simply clicking on the link provided by email after you purchase.
