Bicycle enthusiasts will be gathering May 16th for the 7th year of the Kalamazoo Bicycle Film Festival’s “Bike Shorts” program. This program is a collection of short films that celebrate bicycles and the culture that surrounds them. Each one is 12 minutes or less. The films feature a wide spectrum of experiences, stories and images of bicycling. Some will make you laugh. Some will make you think. The common theme is that they are all for, about or inspired by bicycles. The final line up of 20 – 25 films will be determined after the April 17th entry deadline. The films originate from the United States and internationally.
The “Bike Shorts” program will be presented during Kalamazoo’s Bike Week at Bell’s Eccentric Café located at 355 E Kalamazoo Ave, Kalamazoo, MI 49007. Show times are 6:00 pm (all ages) and 8:15 pm (21+). Tickets will be sold at the door for $5. Bring cash for bicycle themed merchandise such as film festival posters, stickers and t-shirts.
