Bicycle Film Festival, July 16-25

Edinburgh Festival of Cycling [EdFoC] like so many events, fell to the covid pandemic in 2020 and 2021. However EdFoC has teamed up for a second time with the international Bicycle Film Festival – now coming to Edinburgh (virtually) July 16-25 and also supported by Spokes.

The Film Festival moves between all the cities in the map below.

At any time during your city’s Festival, you can stream a great 90-minute film collection curated by the International Festival. It takes you on a journey around the world, from a range of directors and in a wide range of styles. Here is the Edinburgh trailer.

The full 90-minute film includes…

  • A brief history of the bicycle
  • Cycling as a response to knife crime epidemic in London
  • A love between a father and his young BMX-rider son (produced by Lebron James)
  • The incredibly stunning and thrilling view of the annual Tour De Rwanda
  • The story of Julian Molina, the beloved, full-throttle one-legged cyclist
  • Access to education opened to young female students in Kenya after receiving bicycles
  • First female BMX competition at a major sporting event
  • and more!

BFF has been celebrating bicycles through art, film and music for the last 20 years and has an incredible history of working with top artists, film-makers, venues, and institutions around the world. The physical BFF spanned the world in over 90 cities to an audience of over one million people, and for 2021 is continuing in virtual form.

How the virtual Film Festival works

A ticket allows you to view the 90-minute film package at any time during the period July 16 – 25, 2021, streamed to your computer, tablet, or smart TV by simply clicking on the link provided by email. You can view the content in one sitting, or at your leisure, from your own home.

There are 3 ticket prices, all of which provide exactly the same content, but the middle and higher prices enable you to give extra support to both EdFoC and to the international film festival. It is completely up to you which price ticket you choose.

The basic ticket is $10 (plus a small fee), which is very roughly £9 including the fee. To give extra support to EdFoC and BFF there are tickets at $15 or $20 (plus small fee).
