Toronto VeloReel Bicycle Film Festival 2014

Toronto VeloReel is ready!  Join us on August 22, 2014 and take in a unique outdoor theatre experience while Martin Heath from Cinecycle presents this year’s lineup.   We are so looking forward to an evening under the stars!   This is VeloReel’s 3rd  year and we cant wait to hit the road with the show again this year. 

Because we opted to feature Martin Heath and his one of a kind film collection, we will call for 2015 submissions in the fall.  VeloReel would like to thank all the friends that have supported and encouraged the film festival and look forward to many more to come.

See you August 22! 

Stay tuned for programming details!

The Bike Awards tonight!

In 2012 VeloReel screened a few films at the Horseshoe Tavern  as part of The Toronto Bike Awards celebration and we had a great time.  Again this year, The Bike Awards have invited us to share part of the 2013 lineup during their presentation.   This is a great event  where people and organizations who have shown leadership and imagination are awarded for their efforts.  We met some amazing self propelled people last year and definitely left inspired.    Come!

Second Annual VeloReel Movie Festival!

Offers Nuit Blanche bike lovers 
an enchanting cinematic experience under the stars.

This is the perfect opening event to start off Nuit Blanche for those exploring Toronto via bicycle, and a great place to meet with friends, enjoy a snack and make a toast before continuing on with the night of art and culture.

 A different type of film festival, Toronto VeloReel is a DIY community event. Located in Liberty Village at a Bike-In Theater, attendees can bring in their bikes and watch the best cycling culture’s short films from 2013. Festival goers are encouraged to bring their own food and drinks, along with blankets and items to share and play with the audience. Free popcorn will be served!

Toronto’s all-girl Midnight Bike Gang/Arts Collective The Deadly Nightshades are curating the festival’s selection of films. This year’s line-up includes exciting films such as Bike Lordz, a documentary on the self-taught, self-invented bicycle in Accra Ghana, dramatic shorts such as Lost Bike Girl from New York City, and street race videos from Toronto’s own celebrity photographer Steve Carty. The reel is currently being finalized, and exciting updates and announcements will be made in the upcoming weeks!

 October 5th, 2013! 7-9pm! $5! BYOB! Free Popcorn!
