Brisbane Bike Bites – Short Film Competition. Sponsored by Epic Cycles

epicDo you have a video camera and love bikes? Then why not submit a short film and become part of the Brisbane Bicycle Film Festival.

Brisbane Bike Bites is a short film competition aiming to get Brisbane bicycle riders out and about in the city and looking at our city through the lens of a video camera. We feel that Brisbane bike riders have a lot to say, and why not do it by video. So whether it is your interesting commute, a funny story or an animation, bring your idea to life and let us be part of it. We are looking for stories with a Brisbane feel and have some link to our city.reel-and-bikes

Films will be judged on creativity, cinematography and entertainment value as well as bikeiness

The finalists will be shown as part of Brisbane Bicycle Film Festival held in March every year


Thanks to our sponsors Epic Cycles

The winner of the inaugural Brisbane Bike Bites – short film competition was this tale of a bicycle road race held annually in 37 countries around the world ‘Global Gutz’ – but will the Brisbane chapter even make it over the starting line? This film was directed by Guy Mansfield who was there on the night to collect his award. Of course S4CBNE does not condone people breaking the law but we found this film showed an interesting side to bike riding in Brisbane.

Deadline will be early February 2018
