Houston’s Sesquicentennial Park is going to be the site of a “Bike-In Video Festival” on Saturday, November 2, 6:30 pm (screening begins at dark). Part film festival/part social experience, the free outdoor screening will feature artist-made short-length films and videos celebrating bike culture. Houstonians are invited to bring their ride (scooters, bicycles, unicycles, and tricycles) to the 500 block of Preston. Or meet up early with folks from BikeHouston at one of three locations and bike in with new friends.
The event has so many co-organizers that logos fill up half of the program poster, so there will be tons of activities, bike art, contests and giveaways. The main presenter, Whole Foods Market, will have a food truck with free s’mores and the Houston Bicycle Museum is going to set up a vintage bicycle exhibition.
The program is curated by Scott Stulen of the Walker Arts Center. The artist/DJ/curator/programmer has an impressively eclectic resume but, in terms of programming cred, one need only know that he is the guy responsible for the Internet Cat Video Festival, which broke all attendance records at the Walker and has become an international sensation.
