Bicycles often play supporting roles in movies. They do well, but we know that the bicycle has the potential to really shine in a lead role, and certain enlightened directors know this too.
There are a few events coming up that are important to highlight. (We list them in our calendar also, which pops up on this page over to the left.)
A very funny cycling film about a postman who delivers mail by bike. Hilarious. As well, I will be doing a very special super 8 screening of my short 'La Fuga di Olmo' with a live performance of the musical score and narration. Wish me luck or just come by to see if I can pull it off. This special screening of 'La Fuga di Olmo' will be shown before 'Jour de Fete', so get there early. My short film was recently nominated for a Bike Film award in the UK.
Location: CineCycle (CineCycle Coach House 129 Spadina Ave. Down the Lane)
Time: 8 Pm today!
Next is the Todmordon Mills monthly environmental film screenings. This month will feature a movie about people traveling by tricycle across China, called Travels by Tricycle. I've posted the details in our events calendar.
Date: Thursday June 14th
Location: Todmordon Mills Museum
Time: 7 PM
And finally, we need to plan for the future. This movie called You Never Bike Alone was made about the cycling culture in Vancouver. It currently doesn't have a Toronto screening date. I have it on good authority that it has been submitted to the Planet In Focus festival, but may not get scheduled. It looks like an interesting and fun movie, so if you want to see it at Planet In Focus, a short letter to them probably wouldn't hurt!
This bTalk feature lacks a few things, like sons of prime ministers, and it probably won't be daily either, but I hope it makes up for it in content that you actually care about. Now if only we could hear some juicy scandals about bike movie stars.
