Prepare to be inspired Whakatane!
The Big Bike Film Night is on a mission bringing the best cycling short films from around the world together for you.
Showcasing our 2022 collection that has everything a cycle-centric audience could want - action, drama, humour, and plenty of inspiration; the evening is unashamedly and utterly, utterly, utterly designed and devised for the two-wheel devotee.
This year’s treasure chest of films includes one rider’s colourful adventure through dramatic landscapes to the illumination of hot air balloons; a small School’s ambitious plan to create a sustainable way to increase students hauora (a Māori philosophy of health and well-being); three friends epic adventure in South America on a treacherous 2500-kilometre bike and raft trip; a camp designed for female athletes to ride together and progress together; a group of young rowdies expressing their individuality through extreme uni-cycling; a bicycle that is transformed into a work of art; a trail builders' creative expression coming to life before your very eyes; AND one man’s journey from India to Germany on a tandem bike, who on his way picks up strangers to inform them about modern day slavery; ALL in the mix!!
These short films are a great reminder of why we love to ride our bike; with stories that captivate us, stories that make us think, and most importantly of all- stories that inspire us to get out and ride. Tales of character, resilience, challenge, courage, triumphs over adversity and much much more.
So... listen to the voice inside you; it’s telling you to go. Grab your mates, grab your tickets, go on… grab your bike and come along for the ride!
All bikes. All terrains. All good!
