Ready to whet the apppetite of bike lovers, New Zealand's premier bike-themed short film fest is back with a new collection of short movies that have everything cycling fans could want - action, drama, humour and even a hint of romance - as the Big Bike Film Night shares the best cycling short films from around the world with you.
Spinning some wheels with an impressive lineup that includes a stylish look at London’s bike culture, the remarkable story of an American Bike Frame Builder; an absorbing attempt and challenge of cycling up the gruelling 1912 metre peak Mount Ventoux, two very different faces of BMX, with contrasting stories and styles. We also have the homegrown ‘Muscles and Dreams’ documentary, which 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 on the West Coast.
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 will be held on Tuesday 30 May at 7pm. The run time is 120 minutes plus a 15 minute interval and tickets are $22 adults and $18 students and are available from SIT Centrestage Theatre.
