The Bicycle Film Festival is returning to the city this May.
Originating in New York City, the festival added Sacramento last year to its roster of 40 cities that include Amsterdam, London, Milano, and Tokyo.
Between May 12-14, the festival will offer an additional night of films and other activities. The expanded three-night schedule opens Thurs., May 12, at the New Crocker Art Museum. The epicenter for the festival will be Sacramento's Fremont Park between May 13 and 14 (see schedule below). Admission for the BFF is free.
"I'm stoked we're bringing the Bicycle Film Festival back to Sac, where we had such a huge turnout last year," stated BFF founder and director Brendt Barbur, in a written release. "Sacramento is a perfect city forBFF due to its love of the arts and music and rich cycling heritage. The bonus of coming back to town the same time as the Tour of California makes for an awesome weekend for bike lovers."
