Share your bike travel videos - special prize for Mass residents!
Professional and aspiring filmmakers are invited to enter the 5th Annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival.

The Festival is a highlight of Bike Month 2014, and is the ONLY film festival in the USA that focuses specifically on bicycle travel.

Even if you aren’t a filmmaker, please save the date for a fantastic evening of inspiring films at the Regent Theatre. The Festival will take place on Wednesday, May 28th, and is a benefit for MassBike. As we have done in the past, the festival will include a wide array of cookies, the Great Jersey Giveaway, and the chance to win a Ciclismo Classico bicycle tour.

The 5th Annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival invites professional and amateur filmmakers to submit for consideration films ranging from 3 to 60 minutes.
Films must feature bicycle travel of any type: organized tour or informal travel, domestic or international. One of our best-received films from last year involved an epic journey from Marblehead to Swampscott – so you don’t have to jump on a plane to get a great film.

New for 2014: in addition to the Grand Jury prize and the Audience Award, we'll have the Bay State prize, for the best film submitted by a Massachusetts resident. This award will include some first-class Massachusetts goodies!

Submission regulations, where to send and more info is available at
Filmmakers will be notified of Selection Committee’s decision by April 1st.

Man, as jealous as I am that Massachusetts seems to be taking over this whole forum, it's so cool to see stuff like this happening in the northeast! My guess is that, as it transpired in the 1890's, this kind of enthusiasm will persist until bicycling loses its "novelty" status and becomes an accepted, respected form of transportation. Then, unfortunately, we will all become jaded and it will go away.

Enjoy the current bicycling boom while it lasts, Massachusites, and everyone else in the Northeast and beyond!!!!!

Why don't you guys go west, like towards the Berkshires, make it a travelling show!

Jay, I would totally love to! Alas, only enough budget to do it in one place. We will post links to the winners on our facebook page (which I know isn't the same, but it's something) - it is
