Bike Travel Film Festival

Written by Boston Biker on Apr 30

Another email about a cool event

—————

Bay State Bike Week is coming, and one of its highlights is the 3rd Annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival on May 17th at the Regent Theatre in Arlington.

It is the only film festival in the USA to focus specifically on bike travel – in one night, you’ll travel from Mongolia to India, from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, and through Egypt during the Arab Spring. Despite the worldly focus, the festival is a benefit for Massbike!

I am certain it is also the only film festival to feature a Cookie Showcase of Arlington’s best bakeries – which is what happens when event planners have a sweet tooth. We have a Great Jersey Giveaway featuring jerseys from many local and national bike groups. Plus, one lucky attendee will win a free Italian cycling vacation from title sponsor Ciclismo Classico! Get your tickets today (just $10 for advance purchase!) at http://regenttheatre.com/details/the_world_on_wheels

About The World on Wheels: 3rd Annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

The Regent Theatre, Arlington, MA

Social Hour 6-7 PM; films 7-10 PM

A benefit for MassBike

http://www.ciclismoclassico.com/filmfest

Whether across the globe or a few towns away, there’s nothing that recharges and expands horizons like bicycle travel.  The Festival will increase awareness and appreciation for bicycle travel by showcasing
independent films that depict the adventure, humor, and growth that happens on a two-wheeled journey.  We seek films that portray a broad range of experiences – destinations ranging from small Italian hamlets to a
campground 30 miles from home; solo travel or a family reunion on bicycles; an organized tour from inn to inn or a shoestring jaunt with tent and sleeping bag.

Written by Boston Biker on Jan 24

bike film fest
SUBMIT YOUR FILM TO THE 2008 BICYCLE FILM FESTIVAL!!!

DEADLINE FEBRUARY 19, 2008
Please download the entry form.

The bicycle film festival is a celebration of bicycles through film, art and music. And it’s going to come to Boston this year! (still no dates, but looks rad)

They are accepting entries for films with a strong theme or character of bicycles. A fine thriller with one scene of a bicycle chase does not count. They encourage all films with these guidelines to enter:

All lengths 1 minute on up Short films under 10 minutes are easier to program for our popular shorts program. Of course all lengths are accepted and screened.

All types: BMX, narratives, docs, experimental, Hollywood, cycling, and so on.

So if you are a sweet film maker, or know someone who is, go here, and submit your flick.
