Fans of skateboarding, bike culture and independent films will have a chance to experience it all at a drive-in movie night at the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) on July 14.

The event – hosted by CIVL Radio – will feature an award-winning skateboarding documentary by local independent filmmakers Warren Lane Pictures’ “Hicks on Sticks,” which took home the award for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking’ at the Newport Beach Film Festival last year.

The event will also feature a new bike messenger short film by Zenga Bros called “Road Sage.”

Popcorn will be available by donation and attendees can either listen in their cars at 101.7 FM or are welcome to bring a portable stereo and sit outside in a lawn chair under the stars.

Admission to the event is $2 per person, and begins at dusk – roughly 9 p.m. – and the feature film runs 117 minutes.

The film will be screened in parking lot 10 behind Building E, The Envision Athletics building at the Abbotsford UFV campus.

The event is for people of all ages, and no alcohol is allowed; security will be present to check bags and cars.
