I’m looking forward to March this year because that is when the Brisbane Bicycle Film Festival 2018 is on- Hazah!
I can’t wait!
So the Brisbane Bike Film Festival is fast approaching, which means for those who are brave enough, NOW is the time to get cracking and put together an entry!
This festival aims to bring together all the different codes and cycling communities, as well as other would-be riders, supporters, interested parties and other two-wheeled enthusiasts.
These films are a great way to experience other cycling perspectives, celebrate rides, riders and adventures, share the love and freedom of bikes … and contribute to promoting and participating in the thrills, spills and skills of all things cycling!
What do I need to know to submit an entry?
Each film is judged on the criteria of creativity, cinematography, entertainment and overall ‘bikeiness’.
Once all entries are submitted, the finalists are shown for one night only at the Brisbane Bicycle Film Festival, where the winners and People’s Choice Award are also announced.
Entries are open to any Brisbane bicycle riders. The idea is for local riders to grab a camera and film a bike-related video of something bike-related happening in or around Brisbane.
To submit a film – the official requirements are:
- Films should be no more than 5 minutes long
- Quicktime Format MP4 or.mov files
- 1920×1080 frame dimensions preferred. (Definitely not below 720×480) Larger is fine.
- Upload your movie to Vimeo and password protect your film. Include the link to your film on your submission form along with the password.
- The actual final formatted file might be required, in which case you will be notified.
Last year, Guy Marron’s Global Gutz (see below) took out the top prize.
So best of luck for putting together your submissions – see you there!
