Bikes! Films! Booze! Prizes!
As the below poster notes, this weekend marks the 10th annual Filmed by Bike festival, a 5-day-long event featuring films with bike-centric plots, at the Clinton Street Theater. The festival has a wild and fun track record, thanks to its opening night street party—fit with DJs, booze and bike/film enthusiasm.
This year's event will screen a record-breaking 75 films from around the globe over the course of the week. Film shorts and feature-length grace the screen, featuring everything from cyclecross madness to beer-fueled treks. One film's main character is a cow. And the filmmakers won't be the only ones taking home prizes at the end of the show. On Friday, join in on the speed raffle during intermission. Woo!
Opening night April 13 kicks off at 7 pm. Tickets are guaranteed to be available at the door, but you can also swing by the Clinton Street Theater's box office or online any day.
Here's this year's trailer (spoiler: IT'S AWESOME):
