Important Next Steps

Your film has been accepted to Filmed by Bike, but we need you to complete these steps in order to be included in the festival.

  • Send in the final digital format of your film by May 1st.
  • Send us the highest quality version you have.
  • If your film is on Vimeo, set it to be downloadable and notify us – we’ll download it. If it’s already downloadable, you’re all set.
  • If your film is hosted on YouTube, you’re all set, we’ll download the highest quality available unless you’d prefer to send a better version before the deadline.
  • If you need to make modifications to your film, that’s okay. However, if the resulting film is longer, we will be unable to show your film as we are currently at maximum capacity.
