The Big Bike Film Night is an evening dedicated to the love of cycling; pedaling alongside us is our partner the Cycle Chic Film Tour celebrating, inspiring and encouraging women who love to bike.

As well as these two short film fests, in 2017 we introduced the Big Bike Film Night ‘Feature Series‘ for those that craved even for more bike drama, more bike action, and more bike entertainment with inspiring Feature length cycling films showcased around New Zealand.

Dreaming big, and going BIGGER!

For 2018, we are kicking off with a ‘Feature Series’ documentary  “The Moment” about the birth of freeride mountain biking; running over February/ early March before showcasing our 4th ‘vintage’ of The Big Bike Film Night  mid March to June.

The 2018 collection will have a breath-taking range of short movies that are original, educational, entertaining and most importantly of all – inspirational; all celebrating bicycles of some shape or form.

So whether its road cycling, fixed gear, mountain biking, downhill, BMX, uni-cycling, cargo bikes, bike touring, bike trekking, commuter, cruiser, cycle-cross, penne farthing, tri-cycle, tandem, recumbent… ALL are embraced, ALL accepted and ALL honoured in this tribute to the humble bike.

Seeing the growing demand by female bike riders to have their stories told on the Big screen, we introduced the Cycle Chic Film Tour. A stand-alone bike film collection on an exciting new path -that off helping to inspire, encourage and celebrate women who love to bike.

Who is ‘Cycle Chic’ ? She’s an explorer who pushes boundaries, she’s courageous and she an advocate for change- all through the power of the humble bike. The movies presented are diverse, real, and touching, and we will be confirming our National tour dates in March.

Looking forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming screenings!
