The annual Bicycle Film Festival rolls through town tomorrow with a kickoff party at The Knockout and continues through Sunday with music, art and (of course) film events celebrating that two-wheeled miracle that gets us to work faster than you can say N-Judah.
Film offerings are split into seven 2-hour programs of live-action, animated and documentary shorts from international and USA-based filmmakers, each with a specific bike-related theme (BMX, urban biking, films by women, etc). Program 1 includes feature-length film Bill Cunningham New York, a profile of the eponymous octogenarian and New York Times fashion photographer who rides his Schwinn around the city snapping street style photos. All screenings take place at the Victorian Theatre in the Mission.
And if you get tired of sitting in a dark room during the peak of SF summer, bring your fixie to any of the BFF daily parties, including an afternoon street fest, Bender’s afterparty, and Bikes Rock! music night at Milk Bar.
