Bike Month 2024

Ciné-vélo Event: a portrait of utility cycling in Sherbrooke

Sherbrooke, le 24 avril 2024 – Cégep de Sherbrooke, Bishop’s University and Université de Sherbrooke come together for the third consecutive year to present Ciné-vélo on May 1st at La Maison du Cinéma in Sherbrooke. This event, which launches Bike Month, aims to celebrate the many dimensions of cycling!

The event will begin with a 5@7 networking segment during which the documentary’s creators and members of the cycling community will present their research findings and projects throughout various kiosks in the outdoor space located behind La Maison du Cinéma.

At 7 p.m., Ciné-vélo will showcase a short film entitled Amours de vélo, with Laurent Ulrich, the film’s director in attendance. The feature screening event is Sherbrooke à vélo? Portrait du cyclisme utilitaire en 2023 which presents the evolution of utility cycling in the city of Sherbrooke. This project, spearheaded by director Johan Gass, is a co-creation of students from Cégep de Sherbrooke, Université de Sherbrooke, and Bishop’s University.

From the conception of the documentary to the soundtrack, graphic design, subtitles and much more, the creativity and commitment of the Sherbrooke college and university community will be in the spotlight!  This inter-establishment collaboration project is made possible thanks to the financial support of the Estrie Higher Education Hub (PRESE).

Audience members eager to continue the conversation following the screenings are invited to head to Siboire Dépôt in the evening. The event is free, and everyone is welcome, no reservation is required.
