The Bicycle Film Festival is upon us again! Marking is tenth anniversary, the New York BFF is a five day festival with films, art, and parties- all with bicycling as the main theme. Brentd Barbur started the film festival ten years ago after being hit by a bus on his bike, wanting to turn his negative experience into a positive one. Since then, the film festival has gone international, spreading the love and culture of cycling around the world.

Tonight features the JoyRide art opening at Dash Gallery, showcasing dozens of bicycle-themed works of arts by a variety of artists, including photographers Fumie Ishii and Tod Seelie. Kembra Pfahler, of the Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, will be giving a performance as well.

Even if you're not an avid cyclist, I recommend checking out some of the films anyway as they have a wide appeal and offer interesting perspectives on the politics of transportation, self-reliance, the environment, and the potential of the human body. All films are show at Anthology Film Archives on 2nd Ave and 2nd street in Manhattan.
