Bicycle Film Festival London: 4-7 October 2012...


The Bicycle Film Festival returns to The Barbican Centre this week for its ninth season, and on Wednesday night I attended the Press Launch for the festival. Held at the rather swish W Hotel on Wardour Street, guests for the evening were greeted with beautiful bicycles on display in the foyer and more cycle related visual treats...

There was a selected preview of some of the eclectic short films that will be shown over the course of the festival, including 'Joe Moody' and  'The First Unstoppable' which are brilliant. My particular favourite and one I suggest you try and catch is 'Candy Rides' which was charming, creepy and heartbreaking all in the space of 16 minutes!

Alongside the collection of films, a bonus special event will also form part of the festival on the 12th October; together with Transport for London, the BFF present a conference and debate on London Cycling. There will be Panel Discussions... and I'll be one of the Panelists taking part!

Full programme details are available on the BFF Website, and if you're interested in attending the conference on the 12th October (which is free) it runs from 1pm-4pm; please email conference@bicyclefilmfestival.com to reserve a seat.

We're going once every evening of the festival. Hopefully we'll catch some of your recommendations, Candy Riders sounds intriguing!
