FRIDAY 8TH MARCH
4TH WALL THEATRE, BARRING TERRACE, NEW PLYMOUTH
Films about bikes will be returning to the New Zealand Cycle Festival and the Big Bike Film Night’s 2019 line-up promises an unprecedented range that features the full array of cycling genres.
“We had a blast in New Plymouth last year, it was a packed house full of raucous pedal punters making some noise and having fun; we couldn’t be more happier to come back! The Big Bike Film Night connects cycling fans through the art of imagery, storytelling and incredible filmmaking; yet you don’t have to be a cyclist to relate to these stories, there’s something here for everyone” says Curator and ‘Film Pedlar’, Brett Cotter.
The Big Bike Film Night will be screening in New Plymouth on Friday 8th March at the 4th Wall Theatre. “I’m really excited to be a part of the New Zealand Cycling Festival programme again. We love everything about bikes and our event is a celebration of cycling, so it’s an honour to be invited back by the Festival’s Trustees to show this new collection of films to an eager audience” says Brett.
Film makers from around the globe submitted films for inclusion into the 2019 collection, with a Judging Panel comprising of ‘film and bikey types’ viewing the vast amount of submissions. “We look for the very best cycling short films from around the world that are entertaining and tell a story. The Judges offer another set of eyes and their expertise, knowledge and insights are an essential part in confirming the collection” says Brett.
There are over 10 short films screening that range from 2 to 28 minutes in length that form the Big Bike Film Night collection, including a number of New Zealand film premieres and International award winners. Brett says “It certainly will whet the appetite of bike lovers, I’d even go so far as to say it’s Bike-alicious.”
“At the heart of this collection is showing real people being part of some pretty extra-ordinary stories. The humble bike is the unifying factor throughout these films.”
The screening is on Friday 8th March 2019 at the 4th Wall Theatre and commences at 7:30pm with doors opening at 6:45pm.
