The third annual Ciclismo Classico Bike Travel Film Festival will take place on May 17th of this year at the Regent Theater in Arlington, Massachusetts. This event is sponsored by travel company Ciclismo Classico, which specializes in cycling tours around the globe, and is the only film festival in the U.S. that is dedicated solely to bike travel.
Organizers of the festival have put out a Call for Entries and are currently looking for great cycling films to host at the event. Entries can range in length from 3 to 60 minutes and should focus on any type of cycling travel from short organized tours to extended solo expeditions. The featured destinations can be either domestic or international.
Submissions are already being accepted with an official entry deadline set for March 1st. The entry fee is just $25 (Very inexpensive by film-fest standards!), but if you submit your film before February 1st, you’ll get the early-bird rate of just $20. Films selected for screening will announced by early April.
At the event in May, a jury will select their favorite film, which will earn the filmmaker a spot on one of the great cycling tours offered by Ciclismo Classico. A second prize will be given to someone in attendance in the audience as well.
If you’re an aspiring filmmaker who loves to ride, this seems like a great opportunity. Put together your best film and send it on over to the organizers of this event. You may earn your self a great trip and get some recognition for your work in the process.
