Every year we put out the call for jury ideas and we’re flooded with nominations for stellar people to be our movie selectors. This year we’ve assembled a stellar crew of nine people who will wade through endless hours of movies with a keen eye and a tumbler full of bourbon.
Let’s just get this part out of the way: Yes, you can bribe the jury. They like bourbon and other yummy stuff, too. It’s totally okay to slip a $20 in with your submission or otherwise try to sway this brazen bunch.
We’d like to cordially introduce you to the 2011 jury, a merry mix of extremely talented folks that includes Filmed by Bike’s biggest fan, a film journalist, a bike builder and a car-free filmmaker and film instructor who recently moved to Portland. We welcome aboard Heidi Swift, Nate Mescke, Aaron Mesh, Jim Anderson, Mary Nichols, Timo Forsberg, Rebecca Hamilton, Brenda Grell and Patrick Hughey.
Get to know our jury by reading more about them on the Jury Bios page.
Movie submissions are due 1/20/2011. More info >>
