The London Bicycle Film Festival brings the wonder of the bicycle to the city for one very unique cinema event this October. With all aspects of bikes and biking covered by the festival, you can indulge in a very two wheeled passion throughout the week. London Bicycle Film Festival With several bicycle related films screening at the Barbican and plenty of other bike related events, you can be sure to find something inspiring or intriguing to watch and enjoy. From BMX screenings to films with live music accompaniments, there's a wealth of special events to celebrate that most humble of all forms of transport. 13th birthday The 13th annual Bicycle Film Festival is heading to London once again this year and for 2013 there is even more to see and do. Looking at the lifestyle of those who love their bikes, the festival is all about art, music, film and performance in the cycling world. From trail bikes, track bikes, bicycle polo, bike jousting and even recumbent bicycling, the festival celebrates the bicycle in as many ways as possible, as many times as possible. Bikes on screen There are several films screening at the Barbican as part of the London Bicycle Film Festival. With contributors from all over the globe, there are features, shorts, premieres and more. And if the films aren't enough for you, then catch some of the interactive extras with the special Barbican Lates event and of course, the annual bike polo tournament on the final day of the festival. Sure to be full of the same bicycle loving types as attending the film screenings, these should round off the perfect end to the evening. Film highlights The festival is always a popular sight on the London scene and this year's event includes a screening of the award winning film, Wadjda which tells the story of a Saudi girl who enters a Koran recitation competition to win herself money for a bicycle. Other films on this year's bill include Moon Rider, The Way I roll, Ciclo and Racing Around the World so there really is something for everyone. Wadjda Film Review Bike polo Ending the festival on a high note, the crowds will be gathering at the SE1 Courts to witness a day of spectacular cycling action. A mini Tour de France? Thrilling time trials? Perhaps a bicycle relay? No, the final event of the London Bicycle Film Festival is a day of bicycle polo. Open to all if you have a team, you can register now, and if you have never played but want to, you can have a go too. The pros will be on the court, getting in their chukkas in an attempt to win the title of the Bicycle Polo Champion, and the beginners will be wobbling their way around the grounds trying to hit the ball without falling off. Sound like fun? Email polo@bicyclefilmfestival.com for more information. The festival takes place from Thursday 3rd October – Sunday 6th October 2013 at the Barbican Centre.
