Prepare to be inspired Whangarei!
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!
Tickets also available from The Forum North Ticketing Kiosk on the night if not sold out prior.
