Filmed by Bike has grown into an international touring film festival thanks to the amazing time and talent of our amazing Portland volunteers. Are you curious just how this magic has been possible?
Life in the city can be hectic and creative minds need room to breathe.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with a congregation of some of our favorite companies to help you make an escape and find your nature in the city. Together, we assembled a package with everything you need to recharge your senses, invigorate the imagination, dream big and wide.
Our Homestay Program is one of the most rewarding ways to be involved in the festival. Homestays give filmmakers the opportunity to connect with locals, have a comfortable place to rest their head at the end of a long day and a chance to see the real Portland.
DEADLINE: March 15
The 15th Annual Filmed by Bike is May 5-7 at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon.
Our team is hard at work curating an impressive collection of films to dazzle and delight.
