Wheel spin­ning bike film night

Central Otago Mirror - - CLASSIFIEDS - MAR­JORIE COOK Cy­cle Chic: Big Bike Night: TICKET GIVE­AWAY:

A short film night to raise funds to re­pair Taupo’s bike sculp­ture has sparked a trav­el­ling event that is com­ing to Cen­tral Otago.

Big Bike Night event di­rec­tor Brett Cot­ter said the 2015 in­ter­na­tional film night was so suc­cess­ful he de­cided to tour it to 16 cen­tres last year, but only made it as far south as Christchurch.

This year, Wanaka, Queen­stown and Alexan­dra have been in­cluded.

Cot­ter has added a ‘‘sis­ter act’’, Cy­cle Chic, tar­get­ing fe­male au­di­ences in Wanaka and Alexan­dra only.

Cy­cle Chic was in­tro­duced to bal­ance the mas­cu­line fo­cus of Big Bike Night.

‘‘It is cel­e­brat­ing pedal power meet­ing girl power. I found that was the hard­est to cu­rate. It took three years to find the right ma­te­rial. The one is softer, more thought pro­vok­ing but equally as in­spir­ing,’’ Cot­ter said.

Edge­wa­ter Ho­tel, Wanaka, Wednesday May 31, 6pm; Cen­tral Cin­ema, Alexan­dra, Wednesday June 7, 7.30pm.

Edge­wa­ter Ho­tel, Wanaka, Thurs­day June 1, 7pm; World Bar, Queen­stown, Thurs­day June 8, 7.30pm; Cen­tral Cin­ema, Alexan­dra, Thurs­day June 9, 7.30pm;
