Two years of pedaling and several field trips to Africa has produced our Backpack Cinema, the smallest human powered cinema in the world. It uses the energy from just one person to show films to hundreds in the remotest parts of the world.
Friday Late at V&A is a chance to explore the current and latest exhibitions and experience the fun and excitement of live and interactive events based around it. This month’s Friday Late was all about the bicycle not just being a method of transport, but to many – a way of life. We took our small bicycle powered cinema and showed three very cool films.
After a couple of years of prototyping, we’ve developed a pedal powered field cinema that can be carried by one person in a rucksack and taken to the remotest regions of the planet to share educational messages using the power of film.

There’s a lot going on at the moment but we’re really looking forward to the Cyclemania evening at Hampton Court Palace. Save the date, it will be amazing! Belleville Rendez Vous will be showing on the cycle cinema in the incredible, historic setting of Clock Court. Thanks to The Luna Cinema for getting us involved.
Next weekend on Saturday 23rd June from 8.00pm we will celebrating our move into our new London Bridge HQ with a beautiful, and somewhat impromptu, FREE cycle-cinema event in the adjoining White’s Grounds Skate Park. Please save the date and join us for a night of fun in the shadow of The Shard, beneath the railway arches!
More details of the full line up of activities for the weekend will come very soon but in the meantime we need your help…
We can’t decide what film to show, so please cast your votes below.
If you haven’t ever heard of any of these then clearly you are too young! But we’ve put together a little bit of info about each below for guidance!
Update 12th May 2012: Great news, funding for the following project has been approved, which means we are off the Malawi early next year! Woo Hoow
