January 21, 2016
Portland’s 14th annual Filmed by Bike Film Festival returns to the historic Hollywood Theatre with five unique programs showcasing the world’s best independent bike movies. The jury-selected film festival runs May 6-8, 2016 and it kicks off Friday with the New Belgium Brewing Street Party at Velo Cult Bike Shop from 5-9:30 p.m. followed by two “opening night” film screenings at the Hollywood Theatre. Each screening will show 10-15 short, exciting movies featuring love stories, glorious feats of adventure, animated shorts and more. Other programming includes an adventure-themed program, filmmaker Q&A sessions and a brewery bike tour with visiting and local filmmakers.
“Filmed by Bike presents the world’s best independent bike movies at the festival, and we also present on the road with our new traveling program,” says Festival Director and Founder Ayleen Crotty. “We love hosting the festival in a city with an unbridled passion for two wheels and an appreciation for the cinematic side of the films with gorgeous footage and innovative film making techniques.”
