The Bicycle Film Festival 2008 will stop at Zurich for the first time during their 17 countries and 4 continents lasting tour. Like last year our people from Milan will support the festival and this year Carhartt’s engagement involves festival stops London and Zurich, too.
For those who don’t know: The Bicycle Film Festival celebrates the bicycle. It is into all styles of bikes and biking. If you can name it-Tall Bike Jousting, Track Bikes, BMX, Alleycats, Critical Mass, Bike Polo, Cycling to Recumbents, Fixed Gears- we’ve probably either ridden or screened it. What better way to celebrate these lifestyles than through art, film, music and performance? The Bicycle Film Festival brings together all aspects of bicycling together to advocate its ability to transport us in many ways. Ultimately the Fest is about having a good time.
This year the Bicycle Film Festival includes works of established artists such as Jorgen Leth, Mike Mills, Jonas Mekas, Blonde Redhead, Swoon and Michel Gondry among others as part of their programming.
Our people in London closed down the warehouse early October for the special Rollapalluza event, giving two people at a time the chance to stomp the last out of tournament training bikes within 25 seconds of pure pain. Here are some pictures of the event and the great after show party: Gallery #7327
