Bikeminded Film Club 2014


29/01/2014



It was a cold, wet night yesterday, but our hearts were warmed by the peaceful, gentle-paced Taiwanese film Island Etude. This was the first film of our new film club and we hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.

 

In June last year we organised a Bikeminded Film Festival as part of Bike Week. The event was very popular and we received lots of positive feedback, so we thought: why not offer some inspiring cycling-themed films to help us all get through the cold, winter months? This was how our Bikeminded Film Club was born.

 

We are hosting a new monthly film club, with a film screening on the last Tuesday of every month from February to April 2014 in the art-deco splendour of the Lecture Theatre at Kensington and Chelsea Central Library. The theatre has a lovely vibe, really old school and nice and cosy.

 

The second film is the wonderful Saudia Arabian Wadja (2012), which will be screened on 25 February 2014. The great news is that entry to each film is free. To book yourself a ticket visit this link.

    I have been to both the films, having discovered the film club on Eventbrite. The films have been delightful and an insight into cultural issues and life in other countries. What a relief from the usual ‘Lycra stuff’!
    Keep up the good work
