Filmed By Bike 2014: BIKE LOVE

Showtimes

Tuesday, Apr 22
6:00pm

Founded in 2003, Filmed by Bike is a festival of independent, bike-themed short movies from around the world. In the first year, the organizers hoped for 40 attendees and were pleasantly pleased when more than 60 people cycled out to revel in the bike-themed filmmaking. Filmed by Bike was an instant hit!

The festival is held every April in Portland, Oregon at the Clinton Street Theater.  The festival kicks off with a rockin’ street party on opening night. We close off the street, bring in the ruckus, DJs, and beer garden as we spend the night reveling in film and bike culture.

Submissions are limited to ten minutes and revolve around the central theme of cycling. Hundreds of international entries are submitted annually, but only an average of 45 make the final cut. A panel of esteemed jurors makes that tough decision, so come see what delights they bring to us this year.

 

Filmed by Bike supports NW Documentary, a non-profit organization that helps people tell their stories through film. Their Ride and Shoot class teaches the finer points of documentary by bicycle. We love the impressive work they do and are proud to provide them with a portion of the proceeds from Filmed by Bike.
