It’s that time of year again: professional and aspiring filmmakers are invited to enter the 4th Annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival.
The Festival is a highlight of Bike Month 2013, 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 Tuesday, May 21st, and is a benefit for MassBike. This year’s festival will also feature the winning entries from the first-ever Bicycle Travel Film Contest, which is sponsored by Adventure Cycling and World Cycle Videos. 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.

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 ˆ 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.
