Organizers have planned two nights of premier cycling-related films.
The festival takes place Friday and Saturday, October 19-20, 2007, starting at 7:00 pm. In addition to a great lineup of films, there will be a silent auction, a cash bar with wine and Harpoon Beer and food provided by Redbones.
This year’s festival features films by local and national filmmakers new to the festival, and popular filmmakers from previous festivals return with new works. New this year, each night is anchored by a feature film: Gripped Films’ “24 Solo” on Friday night and MGM’s “The Flying Scotsman” on Saturday. The films will be judged by audience poll, and winners will be announced on Saturday night following the screenings.
