BFF TOKYO 2009


Bicycle Film Festival - Tokyo


I could not attend all the film projections but I've seen some very good ones! Thanks a lot to Brendt Barbur, Founding Director of the festival.

I was in the audience for 2 programs, number 4 entitled Urban Bike Shorts and the program dedicated to one film itself : Where are you go.

From program 4, my favorite films where Made in Queens for its humor, Broadway Bomber/Bridge Battle by Lucas Brunelle for the action, and the portrait of the Italian Frame Builder Giovanni Pelizzoli aka "Ciocc". Trailer :

Or how a most experienced builder finds a new inspiration thanks to the street movement.

Living in Yokohama, I also have to present you "Kant" by the YO!kohama Fixed Gear Crew! Enjoy the trailer :

This was yesterday.

Then today I had few time but I really wanted to see this movie : Where are you go, Cairo to Cape Town by Bicycle. Awesome movie. It goes beyond the bicycle culture in my opinion and could be displayed in a more mainstream film festival. If you can watch it somewhere don't hesitate, it is a great documentary.

Here are some photos I took yesterday and today :

Introduction to Program 4, with the YO!kohama FG crew, the Gorilla Team (for the movie Anima D'Acciaio) and the director of Bicycle Parts Butterfly.

In the entrance hall of the festival was the Bicycle Goods Festival.

Currently looking for a new bag I checked the Fredrik Packers booth.

Of course I also met Tomity San, the Keirin Ambassador, he was presenting a new system to park bicycles in narrow spaces, it was part of an ECO friendly project. さすがトミティさん!

Blue Lug was also here presenting their new original Saddle, I like the Mondrian style model, it reminds me of the French team of the 80's, leading by Bernard Hinault, "La vie Claire", they also used at the time this design for their jersey.

This is the new model by Gorilla, I quickly met "Le Lama" who rides for them in Paris and also is part of the Bike Polo Team "Dans ta gueule, Puceau"... which I may translate by "In your face, Virgin" which sounds like a "soft" translation ;) ...

Yes, thanks: it seems it was a great event!
Too bad I discovered it late, but I hope there will be a BFF in 2010.

Thanks Gordon!

Baroccogiapponese : too bad indeed. I announced it 2 or 3 times before on twitter though ;-)
I missed last year one also and was pissed off and promised myself not to miss 2009 one... Check their HP, they announce quite in advance the cities and dates of the events.

Great shots. A friend randomly stumbled on your blog and recognised me in your pictures. I'm wearing the grey poncho and standing next to Nora in the BFF group shots.

You can check out some of my shots from my shots from Tokyo BFF here.

I also made a short video here

Hi Andy!

Sorry you are slightly out of the light on the pics ;-)

I just check your flickr and the video you did with : very nice!

Are you working in any way for Gorilla ?
