Video: Cycle Lane - a short comedy from teens on BFI Film Academy scheme

Team of 16-19-year-olds are behind the four-minute feature which has been shown at festivals in the US

A team of 16-19-year-olds on the BFI Film Academy scheme, based in Dorset, have taken a confrontation between a motorist and a cyclist as the subject of a short comedy called Cycle Lane that has been shown at two film festivals in the United States.

Now released online through Vimeo, the short film has been screened at the Phillips Academy Interscholastic Film Festival in Andover, Massachusetts and the Kalamazoo Bicycle Film Festival in Michigan.
