Wow, imagine that: An entire film festival devoted just to celebrating the bicycle. It began 11 years ago in New York City, and now travels the world.

A series of short films, created by filmmakers from around the world – this year’s entries include films from Japan, Italy, Brazil, the US, Chili and Switzerland, will take audiences on journeys from Ghana to the hills of San Francisco and the Andes mounts. In addition, they’ll be a concurrently running art exhibition at six d.o.g.s gallery space which will focus on the bicycle as not only a means of transport, but also as a platform for social fellowship and thinking. Artists involved include photographers, painters, social groups and street artists.

Screenings will take place at 7 pm and 9 pm December 9, 10 & 11, 2011 at the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation.

And finally, those who what a little more interaction will have two biking options as part of the festival:

Friday night, December 9 – presents its new, not only for fixed gear, fast ride

Sunday, December 11 – Cycling4wine organizes a ride to Markopolou for a wine tasting.

By Athensguide

How does a little girl from Skokie, Illinois find herself in historical Athens, leading curious explorers through the winding streets of Plaka, down "pezodromos" to hidden ouzeries for tempting mezedhes and homemade barrel wine? The journey began more than twenty years ago, and regardless of whether the wanderlust comes from the spiritual and culture DNA flowing through my veins, or the alignment of the stars on that cold mid-December day this Sagitterian came into the world, I never seem to tire of exploring my adopted homeland of Greece. Here you'll join me as I explore Athens: be it the back streets of Psirri and Gazi, or through the National Gardens and Zappeio where a family of turtles makes their home, or down wide, treelined Imittou Street in Pagrati, which pulses with Athenian life 24 hours a day. And while Athens has stolen my heart, the rest of Greece vies for my curiousity and wanderlust. My two guys (that'd be the Greek God, Vasilis and our Greek dog, Scruffy) and I can often be found settling in for a long weekend in some charming mountain village, or a quaint fishing port on a nearby island, or learning how Greek vitners are producing wines that rival some of Napa Valley's finests productions, or celebrating a panayeri in Epirus or sharing in the festivities as a family of Cretan sheepherders come together to sheer their 1500 sheep in the spring ... And if you happen to find yourself heading to Athens, consider finding yourself a real home for your stay. Living amongst the locals, be it for 3 nights or 3 weeks, will offer you the chance to experience true Athens, beyond the Acropolis. Choose from one of our 5 beautiful penthouse and historical homes, and who knows, I may be leading you down that winding "pezodromo" to our favorite hidden ouzerie!
