Call for Entries for the Fourth Annual Boston Bike Film Festival

Organizers for the Fourth Annual Boston Bike Film Festival ask filmmakers with a cycling habit to submit their work to be shown October 17-18, 2008 at the historic Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA. Among the benefits available to acclaimed and amateur filmmakers, the Festival continues to offer a chance to get their films in front of audiences who are intrigued and influential to the quality of cycling nationwide.

The event is a fundraiser for local cycling advocacy groups, including Mass Bike (, and includes a buffet by local the BBQ extraordinaires, Redbones, as well as a cash bar. Film concepts from last year's festival ranged from home moving by bike, to a group of roving BMXers looking for the ultimate empty pool to ride in, to guerrilla bike mechanics

Types of films shown at the BBFF include animated shorts, digitally enhanced clips, and feature length documentaries. Clips from last year's festival are coming soon to:
