Bicycle Film Festival - Downtown NY

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.
The festival features short films by or about: Kenzo Minami, Dan Deacon, Peter Sutherland, Tyrone Williams, YAEJI, Oscar-winning Orlando von Einsiedel, Bike Rides for Black Lives hosted by Nigel Sylvester, Music by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nick Zinner, Cannes Film Festival winning Timothy Spall, and more.
