Checking in on the 8th annual Filmed by Bike

This year’s event poster

Film aficionados take note: submissions for the the 2010 Filmed by Bike fest is just about two months away. Closer still is the deadline to nominate someone to the jury.

Judges attend two submissions screening sessions in February, get a sneak peek at all films submitted, and must “wear the FBB badge of honor proudly on their chest for the duration of their rank of Esteemed Jury Member” says Filmed by Bike’s founder Ayleen Crotty.

Here’s more from Crotty:

“The jury is hot stuff. They’re the people who get the first look at the submissions to Filmed by Bike. Over the course of two days, they wade through endless hours of good and, er, questionable bike movies from around the world. Competition is fierce: only 30 movies can make the final cut. The jury, the ESTEEMED JURY, gets to decree what’s gold and what’s… not.”

Another part of the fest we look forward to every year is the unveiling of the event poster. This year, the poster was created by local artist Tiago DeJerk and it does not disappoint.

Now in its eighth year, Filmed by Bike is guaranteed to be better than ever. The film festival showcases short independent films inspired by bicycles. Each film, eight minutes or less in duration, celebrates the rich culture of the bicycle. More details about the jury nomination process and the festival can be found at the event website.
