Fostering Bike Filmmakers
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.
Filmmakers now have an audience for their bike-themed films. Many of our filmmakers create their pieces specifically for Filmed by Bike. We’re the reason they put an idea into action – they know they’ll have an appreciative audience that understands their passion for bikes.
Filmmakers from around the world flock to Portland for this spirited event, an opportunity to meet other filmmakers, share filmmaking tips and explore Portland by bike with local bike enthusiasts.
