ROSCOE VILLAGE — Bicycle Film Festival Chicago, which runs through Sunday, has become fittingly mobile in 2012.

The fest has expanded to a number of venues across the city, including the Viaduct Theatre, which will host Saturday night's film screenings. The lineup features a series of shorts as a warm-up to the hour-long documentary "Line of Sight," which captures high-speed bicycle messenger races through city streets.

Tickets are $10 and the show starts at 9:30 p.m. Those arriving on two wheels will find plenty of creative bike parking along fences on Western Avenue.

Following the screenings, guests are invited to head to Mulligans Public House for an after-party.

The fest was founded in 2001 by Brendt Barbur as his response to being hit by a bus while riding his bike in New York City. The concept has since spread to other cities, from Brisbane to Vienna.
