Bicycle Film Fest Opportunities Available

Published May 19, 2008

NEW YORK, NY (BRAIN)—The Bicycle Film Festival has been bringing road, mountain, track, leisure, BMX and city biking to the masses since its inception in 2000. Now is your opportunity to partner with the festival to bring your brand and message to the top cycling markets in the United States and abroad.

The Bicycle Film Festival was founded by cycling enthusiast Brendt Barbur. Since 2000 it has grown to more than 15 separate festivals around the globe celebrating bicycle films, art, people, parties and more. The first installment of the festival begins on May 28 in New York City.

"The Bicycle Film Festival continues to double in size every year," said BFF founder Brendt Barbur. "This is where the influential people come and take away the trends that are shaping the bicycle industry. We are on the verge of a tipping point that we've known is coming, and current gas prices aren't hurting the trend."

The 2008 Festival kicks off next Wednesday with a "Bikes Rock" party in Brooklyn, followed by a bicycle art show and Celebrity/VIP Dinner on Thursday to be attended by movie stars and the ultimate cycling celebrity. The main film sessions start on Friday, continuing through Sunday night. A party on Saturday afternoon brings the bikes to the streets of New York City.

Companies that don't want to miss brand association with this event and the subsequent events around the country and globe should contact Steve Boehmke at (714) 633-9955 to discuss partnership opportunities.

"The BFF is so far ahead of its time," Boehmke said. "Brendt brings together bikes, film, art, celebrities and a party atmosphere. Not many cycling events do better than that."
