Specialty Volunteer Position: Bike Movie Expert

Filmed by Bike showcases the best bike movies from around the world. Some of those movies are sent to us by filmmakers who discover Filmed by Bike, other times we discover the filmmaker’s work first and encourage her or him to send in a submission.

Become an expert in bike movies. By the end of this position you will have watched (parts of) more bike movies than anyone in the world. Our two 2013 volunteers were amazing and we’d love for you to be on our 2014 team of amazing volunteers.
