Bicycle Film Festival Tallinn special event - in the evening of 2nd august!

We’re excited to bring the Bicycle Film Festival back to Tallinn for an one evening only special event! Free of admission!

Before the event we’re riding together on the Tour d’ÖÖ Tallinn VII nightride and finishing at Katlaaed for an exciting nighttime outdoor BFF screening and a party at Kuri Karjas.

The ride starts at 21:00 from Tornide väljak, next to old town.
The screening kicks off around 22:30 at Katlaaed (Kalasadama 8) and the party just after the screening just next door at Kuri Karjas until wee hours…
Katlaaed is located just a few hundred meters from Lindaline terminal.

It’s the Estonian premiere of ‘Sister Session’ film! A movie about BMX girls directed by all-female Estonian crew.

The film premiered in NYC in June and was received with a roar!

BFF director Brendt Barbur:
“The audience cried. They were truly touched and it had a huge roar in the end. Definitely a huge hit. My hair stood on my arms at the Sister Session screening.”

BFF media manager Brean Shea:
“Congratulations on an incredible movie. The audience was very moved. Many people (mostly women) told me it was their favorite film in the festival.”

This is going to be fun!

Tänään ajetaan pirittan velolla myös Eestin mestaruuksista. Ajateltiin mennä sinne ensin ja sit group ride ja bff. Onko muita mestoilla?

Tour D’öö:ssä oli 760 osallistujaa, joista 7 järjestäjiä. BFF-katsomo oli jo täynnä kun pyöräilijät saapuivat, mutta onneksi ulkoilmateatteri veti kuitenkin lähes koko porukan. Alueella oli myös ghettogrilli, hodarikärry ja bilehalli, jossa olut maksoi 3€ ja jengi bailas dj:n soitellessa. Oli torstai.

Tässä muutamia kuvia. Joukossa myös omia turistikuvia ja kuvia Eestinmestaruuskisoista Pirittan velolta. Täällä Tour D’öön omat kuvat

hurjaa miten skene näyttää suurelta. Viimeks taisin vuos sitte olla tallinnassa käymässä ja ekan kaupungilla ajavan fillarin spottaukseen meni reilusti yli tunti. Hienoa kun porukkaa näyttää riittävän ja tapahtumat suosittuja.

Some photos!
