PERTH Bike Hub and the City of Perth are collaborating on a “liveable cities film festival” next month.

The City Mojo Film Festival celebrates “liveable cities and community spirit”, and will be held over four Wednesday evenings at the Northbridge Piazza.

Organisers describe the line-up as “quality short films and thought-provoking documentaries that celebrate strong cities, community spirit, and the humble bicycle”.

It is a free event, starting at 7pm each Wednesday from next month. Latino Loco will kick-off the festival on March 1, with Colombian true story Bogota Change as the main feature.

March 8 will mark International Women’s Day and feature a collection of female-focused short films about bold leaders, urban living and roller derby.

On March 15 the main feature will be the joint Indian-Australian production Life Cycle, an exploration of the role of bicycles in the lives of residents of Kolkata, India.

Closing night on March 22 will see market stalls and a visit from the Bike Doctor, as well as a collection of short films and main feature Bike City, Great City from Canada.
