Venue: Plateforme (Rotonde 1)
The B:loft Bicycle Film Night features the finest selection of short bicycle films from around the globe: Uganda, Sweden, Lebanon, UK, Norway, Germany and USA. Amongst them, Cycologic (dir. Emilia Stålhammar, Elsa Lövdin and Veronica Pålsson, Sweden), which tells the compelling story about Amanda Ngabirano, urban planner, who is a persistent and persuasive advocate for the implementation of bike lanes in in Uganda’s Capital, Kampala. The film won at the 11th International Cycling Film Festival in Herne, Germany, the equivalent of the Oscars for bicycle related films.
Length of Sweden (dir. Ertzui Film, Germany) captures the journey of three endurance cyclists as they pursue one of the world’s longest and most beautiful randonées. The team endured 2,177km as they traversed the entire length of Sweden in seven days. Standing out with stunning photography, this movie also follows a mental and emotional journey of the main characters.The film line-up is developed based on guiding principles: inspiring, eye-opening, visually stunning, great storytelling. The bicycle is just an excuse to talk about us and about achieving our dreams, about our emotional and mental journeys, how to create a better human-friendly environment or how to overcome hardship. These films have a potential to touch everyone. During the event, we will hold the photo award ceremony.
The winners of the All-weather cyclist photo contest will be named and awarded prizes (quality bicycle accessories). The winning images will be displayed at Rotondes.
