Sac/Davis Bicycle Film Festival

Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates (SABA) and BikeDavis are teaming up to host the Sac/Davis Bicycle Film Festival, from Feb 5 – 14. This will be a ‘virtual’ festival where people can stream a 1-hour, 45-min selection of short films from the comfort of their homes.

This year is the 20th edition of the Bicycle Film Festival. The program features short films from around the world that celebrate the bicycle culture in all its forms, and get people excited to ride their bikes, whether for exercise, recreation, transportation or adventures. You can watch the trailer here to get a sense. This upbeat program is just the kind of “pick-me-up” that people need to cheer up and go for a ride in these challenging times.

Some of the proceeds from the ticket sales will go to fund SABA’s advocacy work.
