Films by Bike

Adventure sport fans will have a chance to attend a free mini-film festival by bicycle on September 10. The Frozen River Film Festival is partnering with the Beer By Bike Brigade to bring films to three venues in La Crosse, WI. Attendees should bring their bicycles to Riverside’s International gardens at 4:00 p.m. to begin the bike ride. Three venues will be showing films over the course of the Saturday evening.

At 4:30 p.m. the Pump House will be showing the film Dog Days of Winter. Told from the point of view of some of the most influential pioneers of freestyle skiing, it tells the story of key events that lead to the birth of the sport.

At 5:45 p.m. the bike ride continues to the La Crosse Public Library to see Singletrack High. At the age of 16, many American kids trade in two wheels for four, but not these student athletes of the NorCal High School Cycling League.

The next bike stop will be the Warehouse at 7:15 p.m. with a film that introduces us to a couple surfers in Iceland who have a turbulent relationship with the North Atlantic wind.

Crystal Hegge, Executive Director of the Frozen River Film Festival, says the event is going to be a yearly activity to get people excited about the coming festival. “Our mission is to engage our audience, and what better way than by doing a bicycle film tour of downtown La Crosse,” Hegge Said.

The Frozen River Film Festival is going into it’s12th year in 2017. The 2017 dates are February 15 – 19. The films shown on the bike tour are a combination of films shown at previous festivals and a sneak peak of what’s to come in 2017.
