UPDATE: We first reported on the 2020 Big Bike Film Night in January before the global pandemic took hold. Now it returns with new dates and locations listed below.
Cycling enthusiasts get the movie night of their dreams with The Big Bike Film Night, a short film showcase dedicated to pedal-powered adventure.
What started as a passion project has become an increasingly popular nationwide tour that now screens across Aotearoa. In its sixth edition, the 2020 line-up promises even more cinematic stories about bike-lovers from all across the globe.
From the official synopsis: “This year’s treasure chest of films includes a story that reminds you of the importance of finding your ‘why’, and that with a bike you can find a worthy adventure in your own backyard…
“A movie that shows inspiration can come in all shapes and sizes – sometimes that shape and size is a seven-year-old girl who likes to ride BMX; an audacious mountain climbing challenge; a tale of trees, traps and trails, two friends on an environmental mission; a beautiful story about the power of two wheels and a community built through bicycling; and a part documentary/ part fantasy with mountain bike illustrations that will have you looking for your rig and heading down the trail in search of the same kind of magic; ALL in the mix!”
