We might take it for granted, but the global impact of the bicycle is profound. Find out just how far reaching it is at the Bicycle Film Festival Amsterdam! From October 6 until October 8, Amsterdam will celebrate the bicycle and its unique culture with films, art, talks and drinks. We will show you a wide range of films, all telling a different story about the bicycle in the broadest sense of the word. From SciFi to anime to gangster movies, from music videos to television ads, from Saudi Arabia to the Arctic Circle, the range of themes is broad, deep, delightful and surprising.

What sets Amsterdam apart from other smart cities is a holistic approach to city making that puts as much emphasis on spatial and social solutions as ICTs to improve quality of life and accelerate economic growth. And that’s what we call a SmartR City! This tour explains how Amsterdam does this.
