Make a Bike Movie

You've got about a month to get your movie together for the fourth annual Seattle Bike-in. The excellent end-of-summer event brings together bike lovers, bike nerds, transportation advocates, movie makers, street artists, and assorted community activists for a great big film festival, picnic and bike party. The films are being coordinated by the Northwest Film Forum and the Dead Baby Bike Clubs' film guru Two-Wheel Terry. They're seeking bike related short films no later than June 1. Make something wonderful and send it to Terry at The Church of Bicycle Jesus in Seattle. For more info, write to him here or check out the PSA.

The bike-in itself is all day Sunday, Aug 23 in Cal Anderson Park on Capitol Hill. Bands begin at 7:00, and movies start at dusk.

There's lots and lots of excellent short bike movies out there. I just love this awesome documentary on the maiden voyage of the Waffle Bike, a "fully weaponized waffle making device." But for you, here's a bitchin' trailer from last years Bicycle Film Festival in New York.
