Submissions are now open for the Eleventh Annual Bicycle Film Festival! The BFF is
looking for films with a bike-related theme. Any style is acceptable: animation, experimental, narrative, documentary and music videos are all a go.There is no fee to enter your film, simply download a submission form from the BFF website, and send a copy of the film to the BFF Head Office in New York.

The Bicycle Film Festival began in 2001 when Brendt Barbur, founding director of the festival was hit by a bus while riding his bike in New York City. He insisted on turning his negative experience into a positive one. The Bicycle Film Festival is a platform to celebrate the bicycle through music, art and, of course, film.

The BFF travels to over 25 cities around the world, including Paris, London, Tokyo, New York -- and Sydney. Last year, more than 225,000 people attended the festival. The BFF is not only a showcase for new films, but also, includes rock shows, street
parties, art shows, dinners, bike rides and more!

The BFF over the past ten years is proud to be a platform for exposure for many independent filmmakers and artists, and to show a range of emerging filmmakers to established artists, including Albert Maysles, Spike Jonze, Mike Mills, The Neistat Brothers, Michel Gondry, and Tom Sachs.

The 2011 submission deadline is April 1. Any inquiries please email

Paris in 1963

Melvin Sokolsky's 1963 shots. Pre-photoshop and, YES, an actual clear sphere hovering the Parisian streets among cyclists.

The Way We Go

'here is the plan we have on how we go about this trip, the numbers are possible stops but not by any means indication of days we are riding, since we will be full four weeks in the saddle, so don’t worry. like the supertramp song says we take the long way home !

on the last stretch we will keep to the great ocean road cross over with the ferry and then ride up into melbourne via sorrento, rosebud up around the bay towards st. kilda'
