SDI (the Scottish Documentary Institute) is putting on one of the first European screenings of BIKES VS CARS at Edinburgh’s Vue Omni Centre on Monday 4 May at 8:00pm.
If you’re interested in watching this film, cycling to the cinema with the filmmaker, Fredrik Gertten, can be part of the event.
Fredrik is coming over to Edinburgh for the premier, and has arranged to meet up with the SDI organisers on Middle Meadow Walk at 6.45. Any interested filmgoer is more than welcome to come along and meet Fredrik and the SDI people for a chat, before heading off as a group around 7.15 to ride or walk to the Vue at the top of Leith Walk.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Fredrik Gertten, Spokes representative, Peter Hawkins, and Pedal on Parliament and Edinburgh Festival of Cycling organiser, Kim Harding.
A special discounted ticket price of £8.29 (from £9.79) will be offered to anyone who cycles to the cinema from The Meadows. To take advantage of this offer and to take part in Monday’s Cycle to the Cinema ride-out visit http://scotdoc.com/Bike.
‘In 2012, there were one billion cars in the world. By 2020, there will be two billion. BIKES vs CARS, the new documentary from award-winning Swedish director Fredrik Gertten, follows cyclists and groups of activists in traffic-clogged cities across the world and looks at the bicycle as a powerful tool for social change.’
