Join the movement!
Black, Indigenous and People of Color have often been left out of conversations about biking. Their stories have not be centered, shared and celebrated on equal ground.
As a film festival with 20 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, and what a loss this is for the cycling and creative communities.
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.
We award cash grants of $1,500 to each filmmaker, and the number of filmmakers we can support is determined by YOU!
How the Grant Program 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. In 2021 we awarded two more filmmakers. Each year, we are committed to awarding at least one grant. With your support, we can do more!
