So You’ve Got a Bicycle Movie in You?

In 2000, Brendt Barbur was hit by a New York City bus while riding his bicycle. Inspired to take action, he combined his passion for bikes and film and created the Bicycle Film Festival in 2001. The festival, which celebrates the bicycle through music, art, and film, has grown from its small beginnings to a worldwide event. In 2010, the festival?s ninth year, the festival was held in 39 cities around the globe and 250,000 attendees. Now in its 10th year, this international traveling celebration of bikes and the people who love them will be in New York City June 22-26.

If you have a great story to tell about a bike, you should?submit a short film to the 2011 festival; the deadline for submissions is April 1. Check out the trailers here.
