ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Filmed by Bike started in 2003 and has been supporting a burgeoning international community of bike-loving filmmakers ever since. The festival is based in Portland, Oregon and our specialty programs travel throughout the world.
Hundreds of international entries are submitted every year, and the very best (around 40) are featured in our programs. A panel of esteemed jurors makes that tough decision.
Every year, Filmed by Bike holds a huge film festival in Portland, Oregon at the prestigious, historic Hollywood Theatre to celebrate bicycles and film. The festival kicks off with a gigantic street party on opening night and revelry throughout the weekend.
