International Cycling Film Festival

The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures presents a guest screening of the International Cycling Film Festival (ICFF) program. The ICFF was founded in 2005 in Germany and is sponsored by the European Bureau for Film Art and Bicycle Culture. Films of all genres on all aspects of bicycle culture are submitted from around the world and then a jury selects those to be included in the festival. The ICFF gives out several prizes, including the prestigious Golden Crank. This guest screening will be introduced by an ICFF curator, who will present selections from the festival’s vast catalogue of short films.
