Fuck Cancer. There’s no way to say it politely. What started as a ride amongst friends fifteen years ago has become a worldwide community of cyclists who honor lost loved ones and help those in need by raising millions of dollars in Europe, California, Australia & New Zealand. Riding a bike for eight hours a day is a painful and demanding experience but is nothing compared to the physical, mental and emotional pain that cancer patients and their families endure on a weekly basis. The Fireflies tour is a rider funded ride, meaning that the riders pay their way and the ride organisers volunteer their time which means that every cent of sponsorship goes directly towards cancer research via our long term partner and beneficiary The City of Hope. Fireflies West is in it's eighth year, this time from San Francisco to Los Angeles. 550 miles, 50 riders… your support.
BUG: The Evolution Of Music Video was launched in April 2007 as an ongoing series of bi-monthly events at the BFI Southbank in London – the home of British cinema – celebrating global creativity in music video. Since then BUG has become a phenomenon. BUG's objective is to give big-screen exposure to the most awe-inspiring new work in music videos. That means everything from work by well-known masters of the medium to young newcomers working on zero budgets. The sub-heading of BUG – The Evolution of Music Video – refers to the new democracy in video making created by the digital revolution – both in creating and distributing work. BUG is all about brilliant visual ideas, and as such BUG consistently unearths amazing new filmmaking talent.
