The first edition of Ciclofest, the first festival dedicated exclusively to bicycles and bike-lovers, kicks off today, at “Atelierul de Productie”. The festival, organized by the Portocala Mecanica platform and “Atelierul de Productie”, is awaiting, until May 30, projects from all those who include the bicycle in their everyday life – and art. Those who want to put their imagination to good use can send their projects by accessing a link on the ciclofest.ro website, in a special section titled “Call for projects”. Projects can compete in three categories. The first is “Bicycle art”, where competitors can send works from all the fields of creative art: sculpture, photography, assorted design (graphic, fashion, object or bicycle design). The second category, “Bicycle movies”, will include a series of celebrated films revolving around bicycles – short-reel productions, feature films and animations. The last category, “Bicycle games and tricks”, will include games with several participants, tricks that newcomers greatly admire. Whether they are performed on “fixies”, BMX bikes or monocycles, all will be welcome. The same goes for heated games of bike polo or duels as were never seen before in a bike jousting tournament.
Venue: Atelierul de Productie
Address: 160, Splaiul Unirii
Running time: May 26 to 29, 7am to 5pm
