Big Bike Film Night

The Big Bike Film Night, a short film fest style event that celebrates cycling in all its glorious shapes and forms, is coming to Canberra in August.


Pretty excited to say we are returning to Canberra to kickstart the Australian 2019 tour off on Tuesday 6th August (Australian Premiere screening in fact!).

The uplifting 2019 collection has an absolutely breath-taking range of short bike films – from mountain bike, to road, commuters, travel to personal journeys and triumphs.

The programme offers a wide and dynamic variety of appealing storylines, projects and thrills not only for bike fans, but also all movie goers. At the heart of this collection is showing real people on ordinary bikes being part of some pretty extra-ordinary stories. In the lineup is the riveting Australian documentary Lowest to Highest which follows five friends with disabilities attempting a world first human powered ride from Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre 2150km to Mount Kosciuszko. This is a MUST SEE!!
