The 10th Annual Bicycle Film Festival kicks off its three-day Seattle stint tonight at Western Bridge (3412 4th Ave S). The festival features short films that run from a few minutes to more than an hour on subjects like urban cycling, bicycle touring in China and New Zealand, hand-built bicycle construction, cyclocross racing in Japan, and more. Check out the full schedule and buy tickets here.
I'm particularly looking forward to Sunday's lineup. Man Zou, the film about bicycle touring in China, looks fascinating and might satisfy my wanderlust (a $10 movie fits my broke-journalist budget a little better than an actual overseas bike adventure).
The Cyclocross Meeting, Brian Vernor's film about two professional American cyclocross racers participating in Japan's burgeoning cross scene, looks fantastic, too. Cyclocross is the only type of bike racing I do, and we're smack in the middle of cross season; hence, I obsess over it damn near constantly. Take a look at the trailer below.
