The Big Bike Film Night at the ACMI in Melbourne
The Big Bike Film Night is an evening dedicated to celebrating cycling in all its shapes and forms. Two screenings at the ACMI in Melbourne.
We’re on a mission sharing the best cycling short films from around the world with 12 films showcasing a collection that has everything a cycling centric audience could possibly crave- action, drama, humour and plenty of inspiration –it’s going to be bike-a-licious!
Ready to spin some wheels and ring some bells with a breath-taking line-up that includes a stylish look at London’s bike sub-cultures, the remarkable story of an American female Bike Frame Builder; the challenge of cycling up the gruelling 6,273 feet (1912 metre) peak Mount Ventoux, a mtb uni-cyclist, and a BMX freestyler.
The ‘Muscles and Dreams’ documentary is also in the collection and 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; one of the great track building feats of the modern era .
“Absolutely brilliant night full of variety, from much hilarity, to wow, to educational to inspiring.” James ‘Geeza’ Alexander (Rotorua bike nut!)
After the movies there will be a Q&A Session with the Curator Brett Cotter, hosted by Lee 'Hollywood' Turner.
Grab your mates, grab your tickets, GO ON … grab your bike and come along for the ride.
Unless you are on your bike this evening, there are few better places to be in Melbourne.
