The third annual Boston Bike Film Festival is set to start on Thursday October 18. The festival has grown since its start and has moved to the larger venue of the Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square. Organizers have planned three nights of premier cycling-related films.
On opening night "Caravan/Prague" will be shown at the Lucy Parsons Center, located on Columbus Avenue in the South End, followed by an informal gathering at the Other Side Café on Newbury Street. The film will begin at 19:15 EDT. Then on Friday and Saturday, October 19th and 20th, the festival will move to the Brattle Theater. Doors open at 19:00 EDT.
Each night will be anchored by the showing of a feature length film. "24 Solo" from Gripped Films Productions will be the feature for Friday; "The Flying Scotsman" from MGM will be the feature for Saturday. "The Flying Scotsman" is about the live of Graeme Obree, who broke the Hour record twice in his career.
Proceeds of the festival will go to MassBike, a statewide bicycle advocacy group, with more than 3,200 members.
