We know there are many barriers to filmmaking, and funding is a huge barrier. So we’re doing our part to help bring more representation to the world of bike movies.
We are reaching out to our community to crowdfund this program!
Grants will range from $1,500 – $2,000, and the number of grants and amount will be determined by YOU!
Join the movement!
Black, Indigenous and People of Color have often been left out of conversations about biking. As a film festival with 18 years of experience seeking unique bicycle stories, we have a long history of searching for films by BIPOC filmmakers. We know firsthand how few of these films exist.
We’re working to change that!
Funding is a major barrier to filmmaking, which is why we’ve created this fund to award generous grants to emerging filmmakers.
With your support, we can award grants to more filmmakers and help bring important stories and voices to the screen.
How it Works
2020 was our first year launching the BIPOC Filmmaker Grant, Presented by Machines for Freedom, and we awarded three grants of $1,500 each. For 2021, we’re committed to awarding at least one grant. With your support, we can do more!
