Streetsblog Presents: A CicLAvia Film Festival

I’m sure at this point, you’re well aware that CicLAvia is coming back this weekend, from Hel-Mel to Hollenbeck Park right through the heart of Downtown.  To help wet your appetite for this Sunday’s event, we scoured the Internet for the best CicLAvia films, and put our favorites together in to a mini-CicLAvia Film Festival.  Of course, our favorite is the official Streetfilm done by Robin Adams above, but there’s a lot of great films done by others including a time-lapse video shot by Will Campbell and a film of Streetfilms quality by Elson Trinidad.

If you’re a fan of short film, or just want to get geared up for CicLAvia, then you should check out these films, after the jump.

Streetsblog/Streetfilms is going in a different direction, the CicLAvia team asked him to shoot a film directly for […]

After sponsoring two Streetfilms of the first two CicLAvias, Los Angeles’ version of the open streets festival based on Bogota’s Ciclovia, Los Angeles Streetsblog faced a dilemma: How can we continue to cover the event that draws over a hundred thousand Angelenos to the streets?  The Answer? Make a Streetfilm […]
