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.
See below for details of the outdoor screenings as well as some indoor events.
In addition to the outdoor screenings listed below, Cine Yorkshire will present 60 film screenings at a range of venues across Yorkshire, from village & town halls to cathedrals and community centres. For full listings go to www.cineyorkshire.co.uk.
