Big Bike Film Night
Curated by Big Bike Film Night
Screening as part of the New Zealand Bicycle Film Festival (NZBFF)
2017’s bike-alicious new collection of the best short cycling films from around the world, chosen by Kiwis for Kiwis and touring New Zealand with a full range of cycling genres.
Bike Bike Film Night curator Brett Cotter says he’s chuffed about the array of films on offer this year – "and in particular the homegrown Muscles and Dreams documentary. This follows a bunch of good keen men transforming an idea for a gold miner’s road from the 1800’s into New Zealand’s longest continuous single track – The Old Ghost Road."
The lineup also include:
- a stylish look at London’s bike culture
- the remarkable story of bike frame builder Georgena Terry
- the challenge of cycling up the gruelling 1912-metre Mount Ventoux
- and two very different stories of BMX, local legend Paul Langlands and Frenchman Matthias Dundois.
Filmmakers from around the globe submitted films for inclusion, with a judging panel of "film and bikey types" choosing the very best cycling short films that entertain and tell a story.
Plus, we’ve got a special treat on 1 April – no joke!
Phil Rossiter will be with us for Big Bike Film Night on 1 April! He’s the chairman of the community group which carved out the Old Ghost Road – an epic 85km wilderness singletrack in the Mohikinui–Lyell back country. You’ll see the film Muscle and Dreams – Creating the Old Ghost Road, and then get the chance to ask Phil about the 8-year mission to "raise the Ghost."
And for the first time, a partner to ride alongside the Big Bike Film Night – introducing Cycle Chic .
