Throughout the month of July 2018 Cycling UK will be celebrating women who love cycling, and encouraging many more to take up and continue cycling. The Women’s Festival of Cycling will include cycle rides and events all round the country, ranging from just a few miles with a coffee and cake stop to longer endurance rides, both on and off-road. A screening of Mama Agatha is also part of the program, as are many other great events. Visit the website for more information.
We’re delighted to announce that Mama Agatha will be showing at the 2nd Annual Women Sports Film Festival!
The Women Sports Film Festival returns to Oakland with a full slate of films and panel discussions about strong women and girls pursuing their dreams and persisting in the face of tremendous obstacles.
The festival starts September 28. Mama Agatha is scheduled for Saturday, September 30, 2017.
The Cycling and Society symposium series was launched in 2004 at Lancaster University. The symposia, held annually around the UK, are linked to the Cycling and Society Research Group whose members span many disciplines and approaches to the study of cycling.
The next Symposium will be on 7th and 8th September 2017 on the theme of #CitiesToShare, and will be held at Imperial College London, and we are happy to announce that a screening of Mama Agatha will be part of the program on the first day, September 7.
Take a look at the website for more details.

This week in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia:
Ride Your City 2016, a celebration of all things cycling!
We are super excited to be debuting with Mama Agatha in Southeast Asia at this incredible event with bike talks, bike movies, bike exhibitions, bike workshops, bike races and competitions and so much more. Everything in Kuala Lumpur will be revolving around the bicycle on November 5/6 and we’re proud to be a part of it!
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.
Let’s encourage more people to switch from cars to bicycles! Hosted by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Malta, one week from now, Mama Agatha will be screening at the Bicycle Drive-In Open Air Cinema in St George Square, Valetta. If you happen to be living nearby or visiting the area, make sure not to miss it! Don’t forget your bike – we start May 12, 2016 at 8 PM.
Almost two years ago, we were preparing to start filming the cycling classes of “Mama Agatha” – Agartha Frimpong – and her team in the SouthEast gym. Now, just as another round of classes for migrant women has started, we’re so happy to announce that the film is finally returning back into the Amsterdam Zuidoost community. Mama Agatha will soon be screening at the place where it all began, at SouthEast, Amsterdam on Saturday, May 7 2016, 15:00!
Don’t miss this wonderful chance to see it at SouthEast, Bijlmerdreef 1289, Amsterdam.
