How to watch Bicycle Film Festival, which wheels into Austin virtually this weekend
There's a film festival for everything. Bicycle Film Festival's virtual tour is "coming" to Austin from June 25-July 11. The online event will showcase short films specially curated for Austin audiences, according to organizers.
The festival's "selected short film program offers an international point of view of the cycling movement. The stories appeal to a wide audience from film connoisseurs to avid cyclists and everything in between. Bicycle Film Festival plays an important role in creating an eco-friendly society and bringing diverse communities together," according to a news release.
Short films in the Austin program include a story of a father and his BMX-rider son, produced by Lebron James, and a selection about Julian Molina, a one-legged cyclist.
Founded in New York, the Bicycle Film Festival has been around for two decades, with events in cities around the world. The festival also produced an Austin program last year.
Tickets are on sale on a sliding scale for $10, $20 or $30. Go to bicyclefilmfestival.com for more information.
