Brendt Barbur, Founding Festival Director is very enthusiastic to bring the festival back for its third year in Washington. “I believe Washington D.C. has made a name in North America for itself as a place that is dedicated to bringing more cycling to its city,” he says.

For those who will be attending for the first time, Barbour advises attendees to check out the short programs, which he feels “...are a lot of fun.”

“You may like one, you may not like another, but there’s something for everybody.”

All screening events will take place at Gala Theater for $10 each or $30 for a festival pass. The American Ice Company is located at 917 V Street NW and Gala Theatre is located at 3333 14th Street NW. For more information and to buy tickets, visit
