Celebrating International Women’s Day at City Mojo Film Festival, Perth

Thousands of miles and several major, uncycleable bodies of water separate Amsterdam from Australia, but we all celebrate International Women’s Day on the same day! If you are in or nearby Perth, come join the Wonder Women edition of Perth’s City Mojo Film Festival on March 8 organized by Perth Bike Hub and enjoy a great collection of female-focused short films about bold leaders, urban living and roller derby.
Pack your picnic and grab a beanbag. The show starts at 7pm on Northbridge Piazza.

Introducing the first annual Amsterdam Bicycle Film Festival

bffmasthead_animated

Here’s something that might surprise you: The cycling capital of the world does not have a bicycle film festival – until now, that is! Started in 2001 by Brendt Barbur, the Bicycle Film Festival has since grown into a global platform to celebrate the bicycle through music, art and, of course, film. Numerous cities around the world have their Bicycle Film Festival, and starting next week, so will Amsterdam.

Of course, we are joining with Mama Agatha: You can see the film in the special program Women on Wheels at Pakhuis de Zwijger on October 7, starting from 20:00. The entrance is free! Mama Agatha herself will be present for a podium discussion. More info here.

sf-docfestAfter our spring tour and a whole bunch of wonderful community screenings of Mama Agatha across Europe (including in Slovakia, Malta and the place where it all began – in Amsterdam Southeast, where Mama Agatha’s cycling courses take place), we are heading back across the pond: Opening today is the 15th edition of SF DocFest, the annual festival devoted to documentary cinema. Since 2001, this two-week-long event has brought the most weird and wonderful aspects of real life to the big screen. We have the great pleasure to be participating in one of the very best documentary festivals in the Bay area – Mama Agatha is screening in the section “Badass women” on June 12 and June 15 in San Francisco’s marvelous, historic non-profit cinema, the Roxie theatre.
