About Filmed by Bike

Filmed by Bike is a film festival showcasing the world’s best bike movies. We collected and curate an outstanding mix of spirited movies that come from filmmakers all over the world. We host a large awards festival in Portland, Oregon USA every spring where we declare the World’s Best Bike Movies. These collections are seen in cities across the globe through our Traveling Program. Filmed by Bike’s movies spark vibrant communities and inspire people to ride their bikes more. We are inspiring a culture where cycling is woven seamlessly into everyday life.
