Big Bike Film Night

The Big Bike Film Night 2023 - Perth

The Big Bike Film Night is on a mission - bringing the best cycling short films from around the world together for you.

Showcasing 2.5 hours of moving bike films 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!

The 2023 treasure chest of films includes:

  • a delightful young Australian bikepacker's learnings from her scenic trip to Hell
  • a visually commanding film set in postcard Tuscany following a 74-year-old rider who personifies the spirit of cycling
  • a team who have spent five years formulating a dream…and only one way to get it – via packraft and mountain bike, on a pursuit of the first descent on the gnarly lines of Dillon Cone in the rugged coastal Kaikoura ranges of New Zealand
  • two Brisbane schools sharing their insights into how they promote active transport within their school community
  • the tale of a rider with a searing thirst for adventure, exploring Iceland’s spectacular interior putting the ‘mountain’ into mountain biking – a Scottish Highlands rider's eyes are opened to the healing power of the bicycle
  • an uplifting film that celebrates a humble volunteer whose community spirit is inspiring as are the majestic winter views of the trail where he lives
  • a moving movie that follows a family that chooses to live life to the fullest in the face of adversity
  • and rounding out the night, find out what happens when you combine an ultra-distance 320 km gravel race and parenting together over a 24-hour period (which is tougher?)

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 – inspiring us to get out and ride. All celebrate the fun, adventure, and joy that cycling enables.

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!!
