About the Event
Here at Filmed by Bike, we spend eight months of the year connecting with our global community of filmmakers and scouring the internet and social media for interesting independent bicycle films. Every year, we showcase the best of those films at our signature annual film festival.
We dig hard.
Though we prioritize showcasing the stories that often aren’t being told and we look for the work of filmmakers who are too often left out of the conversation, films by and about Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) are hard to come by. That’s why we’re excited to launch High Vis, a showcase of our festival faves from recent years combined with fresh new films, to celebrate this incredible work and these talented filmmakers.
A Festival for Change
We hope that by shining a light on these great films by Black, Indigenous and all People of Color we can inspire other people to tell their bicycle stories. But we also recognize that there are many barriers to producing a film. That’s why we’ve launched two new initiatives this year to help more people tell their stories:
- A free filmmaking workshop on September 12 at the 18th Annual Filmed by Bike, hosted by Courtney Williams
- Our BIPOC Filmmaker Grant program that will provide cash grants to Black, Indigenous and People of Color
A Fundraiser For
Brown Hope is a nonprofit using cultural, educational, and community programming to help communities heal from racism and to drive urgent action for systemic change.
The Filmed by Bike BIPOC Filmmaker Grant program provides cash grants to emerging filmmakers who identify as Black, Indigenous and additional People of Color.
Spread the Word!
Support comes in many forms. One of the best ways you can help promote new BIPOC stories and voices is by spreading the word! Take a look at our Social Media Kit for gorgeous, media-ready images to share with your online circles.
