Bicycle Film Festival


From October 6 until October 8 2016, Amsterdam celebrated the bicycle and its unique culture with films, art, talks and drinks. We showed a wide range of films, all telling a different story about the bicycle in the broadest sense of the word. From SciFi to anime to gangster movies, from music videos to television ads, from Saudi Arabia to the Arctic Circle, the range of themes was broad, deep, delightful and surprising.

The Bicycle Film Festival finds its roots in New York. Brendt Barbur started the festival in 2001 after he was hit by a bus while riding his bike in New York City. He insisted on turning his negative experience into a positive one and, 15 years on, the festival has been a major catalyst for the rise of city cycling internationally.
