9th Annual Bike Shorts Film Festival – Lynchburg Screening
October 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$4
We’re excited to announce the 9th Annual Bike Shorts Film Festival – Lynchburg Screening at Academy Center of the Arts!
This is not a film festival about trail rides or scenic bike tours in exotic locales. This is a film festival about stories that just happen to include bicycles – thrilling heists with narrow escapes by bike, small sci-fi tales of riding bikes in a gas-less apocalypse, and family stories of siblings coming together over a bike ride. Just as bicycles are practical tools to help us get from place to place each day, the Bike Shorts Film Festival focus on stories where bicycles are used in the service of storytelling.
