The Bicycle Film Festival celebrates the bicycle. All styles of bikes and biking, from traditional road cycling to BMX, or the unconventional! If you can name it – Tall Bike Jousting, Track Bikes, BMX, Alleycats, Critical Mass, Bike Polo, Cycling to Recumbents – it’s played at BFF.
The festival brings together all aspects of bicycling together to advocate its ability to transport us in many ways.
Brendt Barbur, Founding Director, was compelled to start the Bicycle Film Festival when he was hit
by a bus while riding his bike in New York City. He insisted on turning his negative experience into a positive one.
In 2001 Barbur started the Bicycle Film Festival as a platform to celebrate the bicycle through music, art, and of course film.
The Bicycle Film Festival has been a major catalyst for the urban bike movement, one of the most powerful and culturally relevant forces of this time.
BFF takes place all across the world in a variety of different cultures and has finally made its way to Springfield, MO to celebrate our great biking community.
