Call for Entries - 7th Annual Boston Bike Film Festival
Deadline – September 1, 2011
Organizers of the 7th Annual Boston Bike Film Festival have asked filmmakers with a cycling habit to submit their work to be shown October 14-15, 2011, at the historic Brattle Theatre in Cambridge. Film submissions are due September 1, 2011. The event is a fundraiser for local cycling advocacy groups, including MassBike and Bikes Not Bombs. Film concepts from last year's festival ranged from a sad little trike looking for love, to a cycling view of Copenhagen, to a tricked out tour of Wales. Among the benefits for acclaimed and amateur filmmakers, the Festival offers a chance to get their films in front of audiences who are intrigued and influential to the quality of cycling nationwide. "Based on audience polls, we have definitely found our niche. We keep tweaking the festival every year," said Cat Bryant, director of the BBFF. "The Boston bike community has shown so much enthusiasm for this event." Types of films shown at the BBFF include animated shorts, narrative stories, and feature length documentaries. Festival information and details for submissions can be found at www.bostonbikefilmfest.org, which will soon include clips from last year's festival.
About the Boston Bike Film Festival
If art exists in movement, then the bicycle becomes a vehicle for creativity. The Boston Bike Film Festival exists as a creative outlet for filmmakers to present their work in a personal yet professional format. Since its inception in 1997, the Boston Bike Film Festival has succeeded in bringing cycling-related topics to the silver screen and thus has given audiences a "bigger picture" of the culture of cycling through the medium of film.
