The 20th Anniversary of Bicycle Film Festival is going virtual. 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.
How does the virtual Bicycle Film Festival work? A ticket allows you to view the 90-minute short film format from 6:00pm EST February 19th through Sunday, February 28th at 11:59PM streamed to your computer, tablet, or smart TV by simply clicking on the link provided by email 15 minutes before opening date and time. Ticket prices are "sliding scale" so all ticket prices entitle you to the same content. You may view BFF in one sitting, or as you will, from the comfort and safety of your home.
