Date & Time
"Bicycle Film Festival, the international film festival celebrating bicycles through art, film and music the last 20 years is back. Virtually! Hosted by Cinema Arts Centre, BFF Long Island begins January 22, 2021.
BFF Long Island presents a 90-minute international film program of the most important short films from the BFF collection. BFF select shorts will appeal to a wide audience from film connoisseurs to avid cyclists and everything in between. Let the BFF curated collection take you on a journey around the world as we learn about a charismatic Ghanaian 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.
Bicycle Film Festival was born in New York twenty years ago at Anthology Film Archives. Due to COVID-19, the 20th anniversary of the festival has gone virtual. 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."
