Filmed By Bike

The Eighth Annual Filmed by Bike film festival takes place at Portland's Clinton Street Theater April 16-18. The festival features nothing but short films, eight minutes or less, all of which prominently feature bikes. The films have almost nothing else in common, hailing from all over the world, and ranging from love stories to travelogues to serious documentaries to animated fantasies to music videos. The juried selection of 40 films are compiled into two separate programs which rotate through the weekend.

The festival opens on Friday the 16th with a famously well attended street party sponsored by New Belgium Brewery and featuring bands, sets from DJ Anjali and Incredible Kid and lots and lots of bikers in their Spring finery. Go here for full festival schedule and ticket information.
