Films to promote at this years Bicycle Film Festival

This year I didn't make a film but rather I'm in one. Remember those Orange bikes DKNY put up all over the city?

Orange Bikes Take Manhattan - Bicycle Film Festival 2008
By Kalim Armstrong.
Friday May 30th - 7pm, 9:15pm and 11:15pm (same program is repeated)
32 2nd Ave. at 2nd St.
From the film maker:

"I short I made is screening on Friday in the Bicycle Film Festival. Orange bikes documents the reaction to a guerrilla marketing campaign during fashion week. Orange monochromatic bicycles appeared chained as part of DKNY's "Explore your city" campaign. The bikes were reminiscent of the Ghost Bike memorial project, white painted bikes that serve as markers where cyclists have died in traffic accidents. This film explores the backlash to the marketing campaign.

Kalim will be on hand for the 7:00pm showing.

Here is the trailer:
