Big Bike Film Night

 The Big Bike Film Night is on a mission- bringing the best cycling short films from around the world together for you.

Showcasing 2.5 hours of moving bike films that has everything a cycle-centric audience could  want – action, drama, humour, and plenty of inspiration; the evening is unashamedly and utterly, utterly, utterly designed and devised for the two-wheel devotee!

The 2024 treasure chest of films includes:
• a visually commanding film following one rider’s colourful adventure scouring the most beautiful spots from Guatemala to Peru via Bolivia bringing together a masterpiece of
breathtaking images and memories
• a documentary about a community of cyclists from Alexandra who all share a similar love and passion for their place, people and sport
• discovering how a bicycle can be much more than a bicycle, bringing change to people’s lives
• a determined father and his daughter prepare for their greatest adventure together: an ambitious ride that will push them to physical and emotional limits on abike ride around Central Otago’s Lake Dunstan Trail

• a passionate and quirky Australian cyclist advocating to “Ride your bike, don’t just romance the idea. Ride.”

• joining 10 young people as they learn to ride a long way.... embarking on a 900km bike packing trip from Wellington to Wānaka
• a fast-paced, fun, and feminist bike race film that finally gives a groundbreaking, nearly forgotten athletic hero her rightful place in history
• a moving movie set in Scotland, showcasing how the simple joy of riding bikes can make a big impact
• and rounding out the night, “Everesting” is a feather few cyclists have in their caps, but  what happens if your cap is full? So full in fact, you think “why not do two?”

ALL in the mix!
