Get Involved

One of Streetfilms’ first big breaks was covering the weekly Colombian cultural event, Ciclovia, in which all the streets of capital city Bogota are closed to cars to make way for cyclists and pedestrians.

As citizens walk, skate or bike through the streets, they can take part in aerobics or yoga, have a picnic, catch up with friends and family, or listen to a musical performance.

Since 1974, the event was created to promote cultural bonding as well as an active, healthy lifestyle. It’s a city-wide block party that’s nothing but a good time.
