Filmed by Bike is world-class film festival featuring bicycle-themed movies from across the globe. In April they celebrated their 10th anniversary and now they are preparing to enter their next decade, ripe with new ideas and plenty of creativity.
Once upon a time, bikes weren’t used as an accessory in fashion magazine shoots, it was consider really odd to ride your bike to work and cyclists were treated as second class citizens. A lot of that has changed, and for the past 10 years Filmed by Bike has been there every pedal stroke of the way, celebrating bikes on the silver screen.
Maybe this is your year to devote your creative energy to the production of a bike-themed movie. Submissions are limited to eight minutes and the deadline is 1/20/2013. That may seem like a ways off, but now is the time to shoot your footage before the rains hit Oregon and your actors are soggy.
A panel of jurors selects the collection that screens at the festival, which is scheduled for April 20-23, 2013 at the Clinton Street Theater.
