Let the good times ROLL Whangarei! The Big Bike Film Night is on a mission- bringing the best cycling short films from around the world together for you.

Showcasing a carefully crafted and curated collection of bike films that has everything a cycle-centric audience could want - action, drama, humour, and plenty of inspiration; the evening is unashamedly and utterly, utterly, utterly designed and devised for the two-wheel devotee!

There’s always an air of mystique about The Big Bike Film Night; we’re not your typical mainstream film festival, we’re left field and damn proud of it.

We treasure where a bike can take you, and through our annual curated collection of short bike films that is devised and designed to delight the two-wheel devotee we celebrate the fun, the adventure and the inspiration that cycling enables. 

We don’t reveal what films go into our collections; just like riding a bike –it’s the journey and not the destination that is important, but here are some insights...

The 2024 treasure chest of films includes:
• a documentary about a community of cyclists from Alexandra who all share a similar love and passion for their place, people and sport
• a visually commanding film following one rider’s colourful adventure scouring the most beautiful spots from Guatemala to Peru via Bolivia bringing together a masterpiece of breathtaking images and memories
• we discover how a bicycle can be much more than a bicycle, bringing change to people’s lives
• a determined father and his daughter prepare for their greatest adventure together: an ambitious ride that will push them to physical and emotional limits on a gruelling bike ride around Central Otago’s Lake Dunstan Trail
• a passionate and quirky Australian cyclist advocating to us to “Ride your bike, don’t just romance the idea. Ride.”
• we join 10 young people as they learn to ride a long way…. embarking on a 900km bikepacking trip from Wellington to Wānaka in New Zealand
• a fast-paced, fun, and feminist bike race film that finally gives a groundbreaking, nearly forgotten athletic hero her rightful place in history
• a moving movie set in Scotland, showcasing how the simple joy of riding bikes can make a big impact
• and rounding out the night, “Everesting” is a feather few cyclists have in their caps, but what happens if your cap is full? So full in fact, you think “why not do two?”
ALL in the mix!

“Wow! If it comes to your town do NOT miss it. Something for everyone.”
“The Big Bike Film Night is always a wonderful, eclectic, wacky mix of films and I love it!”
“If you haven’t experienced the cinematic excellence of The Big Bike Film Night - then YOU MUST!!!'
“Go- you will be entertained and inspired!!“
