Bicycle Film Festival
City bikers donÃ¢â¬â¢t necessarily live in the lap of luxury, so a valet-parking system just for them definitely raises the (handle)bar. During the Bicycle Film Festival, the free valet service keeps ridersÃ¢â¬â¢ minds off the constant dread of losing oneÃ¢â¬â¢s wheels and on the more important stuff: over five dozen films about two-wheeled transport. TonightÃ¢â¬â¢s opening party features an A/V installation with the music of moving bicycle parts and a screening of 1974Ã¢â¬â¢s Impossible Hour, about the Danish racer Ole RitterÃ¢â¬â¢s attempt at breaking the one-hour track-cycling record, with a live score by Simone Pace of Blonde Redhead. Other activities include the Dear Velo art show on Thursday and a street party with a Ã¢â¬Åbike beauty contestÃ¢â¬ï¿½ on Saturday. Films, May 30 through June 1, Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Avenue, 212-505-5181
Wed., May 28, 9 p.m., 2008
