Bicycle Film Festival Tuesday, June 30, 2009, 2:18 pm

The Bicycle Film Festival will be taking place this weekend in Pittsburgh, PA.

The international festival, now in its ninth year, is traveling to more than 30 cities, including New York, London, Paris, Sidney and Tokyo. This year, for the first time, the festival will be coming to Pittsburgh on July 2-4.

made in queensLocal cycling magazine, Urban Velo, along with us at BikePGH are excited to present this festival to Pittsburgh.

The heart and soul of the film festival are the short films-contributed by filmmakers from around the world, both professional and amateur. Additionally, two high-profile films highlight this year's festival. Made in Queens tells the story of New York City youths from Trinidad who attach 15,000 watt stereo systems to their bicycles. Where Are You Go documents an incredible bicycle ride across Africa-from Cairo to Cape Town.

The cost of the festival is $8 per night. All screenings will be held at the Andy Warhol Museum, 117 Sandusky St, in the Northside. It is recommended that you purchase your tickets online, as screenings are expected to sell out.

AFTER PARTY! The After Party doubles as the release party for Urban Velo #14, and is sponsored by Magic Hat Brewing Brewing Company and 42BELOW. Get ready for a Bicycle Fashion Show, followed by DJs into the night. Artwork spanning the fourteen issues of Urban Velo will also decorate the walls.

All ticket holders and BikePGH Members will gain FREE admission to the after-party at the Brew House in the South Side ($5 otherwise).
