The Tour De Cinema film commission, Velorama (Directed by Daisy Asquith with music composed by Bill Nelson) will be available for further screenings soon. Watch the trailer here - - and to enquire about further screenings please email or follow @sheffdocfest and @xolabs on Twitter.


The Tour de Cinema, working with National Trust, Cine Yorkshire and many other partners, will unveil thirty super-high-definition screens in unusual locations across Yorkshire for an unrivalled programme of fiction and non-fiction films about cycling.

The programme includes a brand new commission teaming up award-winning director Daisy Asquith with composer Bill Nelson and drawing on rare BFI film and music archives to chart the journey of the bicycle from new technology to familiar household transport.

It also highlights forgotten treasures like Alan Bennett’s rarely seen BBC film from the 1970s - A Day Out, about a Halifax cycling club, and is a chance to see The Big Melt, paying homage to a century of steel-making with a blazing soundtrack compiled by Sheffield’s Jarvis Cocker.

Alongside these gems, The Yorkshire Film Archive introduces a newly compiled film drawn from cine club and home movie collections to show cycling in all its forms, from childhood to adulthood.
