Bicycle Film Festival heads to London

Road to Roubaix highlight of Barbican event

Road to Roubaix is a film that exemplifies the beauty and agony of the Paris-Roubaix.

The Bicycle Film Festival (BFF) rolls into the Barbican from 1-4 October 2008 for the London leg of its 16-city international tour. 


A carnival of films, music, seminars and events that bring together diverse aspects of global cycling culture, LBFF celebrates the numerous ways the bicycle is able to transport us – through the city, the mountains and beyond. Or, as recent events in Beijing illustrate, to Olympic gold!

Founder and director Brendt Barbur says: “We’re thrilled that BFF has aided to catalyse one of the largest youth movements in the world. We hope to show everyone how huge and important bicycle culture is, and how many people live for bikes.”


2008 highlights at the Barbican include the highly anticipated UK premiere of Road to Roubaix; the UK premiere of Macaframa; a programme of Fun Bike Shorts including footage of the day orange DKNY bike took over New York in Orange Bikes Take Manhattan and Matthew McGuiness and George Bliss and Matthew Modine talking about building a bike movement in Bicycle Stories.
