[Event Announcement from the Bicycle Coalition of Maine]
The 20th anniversary of the Bicycle Film Festival is going virtual and arriving in Maine March 12-21, hosted by us, the Bicycle Coalition of Maine.

This year, BFF Maine is presenting an international selection of the most important short films from the BFF collection. Film fans and bicycle fans alike will enjoy and be moved by stories featuring:
A charismatic Ghanian immigrant in Amsterdam who teaches adult women refugees to ride bikes
The first BMX crew in Nigeria
A bird’s-eye view of a Black Lives Matter protest ride from NYC to Washington, D.C.
New York City through the lens of female bike messengers
The anguish of a father coping with the loss of his son
The struggle of a young woman and her bike in Iran
Cycle sport as relief from genocide
BFF Maine will also include a panel discussion following the films, entitled “Everybody Bicycling Everywhere in Maine.” Maine is an amazing part of the world to explore by bicycle! We’ll be sharing resources, advice, and personal experiences that support newcomers to take a chance and try something new, or embolden more avid cyclists to push their boundaries. Topics will cover equipment, skills and safety, route development, commuting, bike-packing and touring, inclusion regardless of age or background, adaptive cycling for people with disabilities, and ideas for blending bicycling into everyday lives. Please join us to celebrate bicycling in Maine!
Wondering how a virtual film festival works? A ticket allows you to view this fantastic series of short films and the panel discussion at any time during the period of March 12 at 6 p.m. ET to March 21 at 11:59 p.m. ET streamed to your computer, tablet, or smart TV by simply clicking on the link provided via email after you purchase.
Ticket prices are on a sliding scale of $10-20, and all ticket prices provide the same content. The Bicycle Coalition of Maine receives a portion of the proceeds.
We hope you’ll join us for some fantastic films!
