NEW YORK, US (April 12) –The 5th Annual Bicycle Film Festival will kick off its 2005 tour, with a four-night stand at the Anthology Film Archives, May 12-15. In addition to screening 55 feature-length and short films that celebrate bicycles and urban bike culture, the festival will also host a bike-centric art show entitled “Street,” which will run throughout the festival, and a downtown parade on Saturday, May 14th, which is expected to draw hundreds of cyclists.
This year’s festival will feature the premiere of a couple of documentaries about the events surrounding last summer’s Republican National Convention and the Critical Mass bicycle movement, which resulted in the arrests of hundreds of cyclists. There are several films about bike messengers, including “Fast and Reliable” the story of Dexter, a courier with one leg and a classic: “A Sunday In Hell,” the 1976 film about the Paris-Roubaix race by Jurgen Leth.
