Description

In late summer, after the bicycle season draws to a close in many parts of Europe, Bochum, Germany hosts an International Cycling Film Festival. Started in 2006, this non-for-profit festival aims to promote cycling culture, international cooperation, and interaction between cyclists and filmmakers. Films screened are of several genres including documentary, animation or short non-fiction. The Golden Kurbel or Golden Krank is awarded to the best film in the festival as judged by the panel, however, audience awards are also given to the most entertaining film. In 2010 the Golden Kurbel was awarded to Romanian filmmaker Alexei Gubenco for his movie ‘Viva La Crise!.’ Bochum, situated in North Rhine-Westphalia, is often considered the cultural centre of the Ruhr region and with its several theatres and museums festival attendees won’t be short on things to do. At the end of the festival audiences and filmmakers are invited to join in an individual and team time trial over 20km.
