Social Hour 6-7 PM; films 7-10 PM
A benefit for MassBike
The Festival’s mission is to celebrate Bike Week 2014 and to inspire attendees to explore by bicycle. Whether across the globe or a few towns away, there’s nothing that recharges and expands horizons like bicycle travel. The Festival will increase awareness and appreciation for bicycle travel by showcasing independent films that depict the adventure, humor, and growth inherent in two-wheeled journeys. We seek films that portray a broad range of experiences – destinations ranging from small African villages to a campground 30 miles from home; solo travel or a family reunion on bicycles; an organized tour from inn to inn or a shoestring jaunt with tent and sleeping bag. Ours is the ONLY film festival in the USA that focuses specifically on bicycle travel.
Call for Entries
The 5th Annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival invites professional and amateur filmmakers to submit for consideration films ranging from 3 to 60 minutes.
Films should center on bicycle travel of any type, whether an organized tour or a solo exploration. The destination can be domestic or international.
A Grand Jury Prize will be voted on by our Jury of top bicycle, travel, and film festival directors.
An additional Audience Prize will be voted on at the festival.
New for 2014: in addition to the Grand Jury prize and the Audience Award, we’ll have the Bay State prize, for the best film submitted by a Massachusetts resident. This award will include some first-class Massachusetts goodies!
For the second year, Ciclismo Classico will be collaborating with the Adventure Cycling Association’s Bicycle Travel Video Contest,
and will be screening several of the top entries from that competition. Please feel free to enter your film in both!
