6 December 2021


The Big Bike Film Night returns for 2022, and is pedalling into Tauranga on Wednesday 23rd February 2022.

Described as ‘a feast of short films devoted to the bicycle and all who ride’, The Big Bike Film Night is an annual event that presents an array of international and New Zealand movies specifically selected by Taupō based Curator/ “Film Pedlar”, Brett Cotter.

The dynamic concept showcases the best cycling short films from around the world; and this year includes one rider’s colourful adventure through dramatic landscapes to the illumination of hot air balloons; a small School’s ambitious plan to create a sustainable way to increase students hauora (a Māori philosophy of health and well-being); three friends mission to the centre of South America on a treacherous 2500-kilometre bike and raft trip; a camp designed for female athletes to ride together and progress together; a group of young rowdies expressing their individuality through uni-cycling; a bicycle that is transformed into a work of art; a trail builders' creative expression coming to life before your very eyes; AND one man’s journey from India to Germany on a tandem bike, who on his way picks up strangers to inform them about modern day slavery; ALL in the mix!!

A diverse and exciting selection offering plenty of appeal and thrills is ready to uplift and entertain pedal patrons and moviegoers so come along for one heck of a ride!!!

The Big Bike Film Night screens in Tauranga at the Graeme Young Youth Theatre, Tauranga Boys College on Wednesday 23rd February, 7pm. More information and Tickets at (with limited door sales on the night subject to availability).
