Dutch bicycle film ‘Why We Cycle’ gets Dublin and Sligo premieres

category national | environment | event notice author Wednesday June 13, 2018 21:29author by Irish Cycle Report this post to the editors

Dutch documentary 'Why We Cycle' is getting its Dublin premiere this Monday June 11, and Sligo premiere on Thursday June 14.

“It is not a film about policy and strategy. Instead, it is more of a manifesto, showing people why they should want to aspire a cycling society,” said Marco te Brömmelstroet (aka Cycling Professor), a producer of the documentary, when interviewed by Carlton Reid of bikebiz.com.

Brömmelstroet said the film should help advocates to “know what to ask from your politicians and why you should start fighting for such a future.”

Both are free screenings organisation by the Dublin Cycling Campaign and Sligo Cycling Campaign, respectively, as part of Bike Week. The film is 57mins long.

The Dublin showing -- also supported by Dublin City Council -- is to take place in the council's Wood Quay Venue at 7pm on Monday evening. Free tickets for Dublin can be found at https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/why-we-cycle-tickets-467985...26653

The Sligo screening is to be shown at The Building Block on Bridge Street in the town on Thursday June 14 at 6pm. Free tickets can be found at https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/why-we-cycle-taskovski-film...nttix

While in Dungarvan, it will screen also on Thursday June 14 but with a starting time of 7.30pm at the SGC Cinema in Dungarvan. This funded by Waterford Council, hosted by Waterford Cycling Campaign. Free entry, bookings via https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/why-we-cycle-film-dungarvan...ivmlt

The film has previously been screened in Waterford, Cork and Tralee, Co Kerry by the Waterford, Cork and Kerry cycling campaigns, respectively, supported by Cyclist.ie, which secured the rights to a number of screenings in Ireland.
