BICYCLE FILM FESTIVAL
BICYCLE FILM FESTIVAL: CALL FOR ENTRIES
PRESS RELEASE- MARCH 1, 2011
Deadline: April 1
Submissions are now open for the Eleventh Annual Bicycle Film Festival! The BFF is looking for
films with a bike-related theme. Any style is acceptable: animation, experimental, narrative,
documentary and music videos are all a go.
There is no fee to enter your film, simply download a submission form from the BFF website, and
send a copy of the film to the BFF Head Office in New York.
The Bicycle Film Festival began in 2001 when Brendt Barbur, founding director of the festival was hit
by a bus while riding his bike in New York City. He insisted on turning his negative experience into a
positive one. The Bicycle Film Festival is a platform to celebrate the bicycle through music, art and,
of course, film.
The BFF travels to over 25 cities around the world, including Paris, London, Tokyo, New York -- and
Sydney. Last year, more than 225,000 people attended the festival. The BFF is not only a showcase
for new films, but also, includes rock shows, street parties, art shows, dinners, bike rides and more!
The BFF over the past ten years is proud to be a platform for exposure for many independent
filmmakers and artists, and to show a range of emerging filmmakers to established artists, including
Albert Maysles, Spike Jonze, Mike Mills, The Neistat Brothers, Michel Gondry, and Tom Sachs.
The 2011 submission deadline is April 1. Any inquiries please email email@example.com
