Dan Austin is a co-founder of the 88bikes Foundation, which endows bicycles to girls around the world, especially girls rescued from human trafficking. The organization has endowed nearly 3,000 bikes to kids in 14 countries since 2007, and it partners with vetted NGOs to ensure that local vendors and labor are tapped for the work. Austin is also a multi-lingual explorer, director of seven documentaries and author of three books, including the recent The Road Trip Pilgrim’s Guide. His first documentary feature, True Fans, screened at Mountainfilm in 2000, and he has returned to the festival nearly every year since.
