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.
