The Neistat Brothers - History - Netflix
In 2001 Brendt Barbur was hit by a bus while riding his bicycle in New York City. Insisting on turning this negative experience into a positive one, Barbur created the Bicycle Film Festival as a platform to celebrate bicycles through music, art and film. The first event was in New York, and cycling aficionados in other cities soon wanted to replicate it for their own communities. As at 2012, the festival had taken place in more than 50 cities in North America, Europe and Asia. The festival, which is non-juried, now attracts submissions by independent directors from around the world. In New York, it is held annually in the prestigious Anthology Film Archives. The Bicycle Film Festival has been a significant catalyst for the urban bike movement. It has provided a platform for many bicycle advocates and filmmakers to premiere both shorts and feature-length films that otherwise may not have seen a wide release, and its growth has been linked to the emergence of the cycle chic movement.
