Bike culture maven Ayleen Crotty is gearing up for her seventh annual Filmed by Bike festival and she just sent word that this year’s trailer is now available online (watch it below).

The homegrown bike film fest begin humbly in 2003 and since then, it has grown to a mega-event that has nurtured an international pool of bike-loving auteurs and regularly sells out multiple screenings.

For 2009, Crotty has enlisted New Hampshire-based filmmaker Lynn Robinson of BLACK CAP Studio to create a trailer for the event. The trailer debuted at a party held during the Oregon Manifest show (at Wieden + Kennedy) back in October.

One of Robinson’s films, DIY: Emancipation 101 was shown at the 2008 Filmed by Bike and Crotty says Robinson became “one of the fest’s biggest fans.”

“Lynn’s got this crazy-cool collage style that’s raw and energetic — it’s perfect for Filmed by Bike!” says Crotty.

Crotty also sees the ’09 trailer as representative of Filmed by Bike’s national and global reach. The fest has screened films from all over the globe including Sweden and Los Angeles.

This year’s Filmed by Bike is slated for April 17-23 at Clinton St. Theater in SE Portland. Stay tuned for more fest news. You can also meet Ayleen and purchase the newly designed event poster and DVD (along with other cool stuff Ayleen makes) at BikeCraft this Wednesday.

    Can’t wait!

    FBB is the unofficial start of the good weather biking season, when we can start packing away all that smelly rain gear and start letting it hang out a little. I like how we get to have a little party indoors for the movie, and then go out and get on our bikes for a nighttime of more fun. Just thinking about it makes my ride home tonight seem a little easier!
