The Bicycle Film Festival will kick off it’s tenth anniversary tomorrow night with a big celebration at Santos Party House. Founder and festival director Brendt Barbur was compelled to start the festival after being hit by a bus while riding his bike in New York City in 2001. The festival celebrates the bicycle through music, art, and film (and is now considered to have been a catalyst for the urban bike movement). BFF has become somewhat of an international fenomanon – held in 37 cities worldwide. 300,000 people are expected to attend this year. Along with various art parties and events (many in and around the L.E.S.), all screenings will be held at Anthology Archives this year. The festival runs June 16th – 20th.
