The 9th Annual Filmed by Bike – a film festival filled entirely with bike-themed movies from around the world – will take place April 15-17 at the Clinton Street Theater, 2516 SE Clinton St.
In the films, love can blossom, adventures are sought, races are completed and stories of two-wheeled adventures cycle across the silver screen in eight minutes or less, the festival's time limit for each film.
Opening night will feature the New Belgium Street Party, a Speed Raffle presented by Sock Dreams entertainment and DJ Beyondadoubt (aka DJ Beyonda). Generous bike parking and a beer garden will be available in the middle of Clinton Street.
The top film, as chosen by the jury, will be awarded the Golden Helmet Award, with a $250 cash prize presented Saturday following the 7 p.m. show. The film with the best use of independent music will be awarded the GoIndependent! Award, a $250 cash prize from Bike Gallery, to be presented on Friday.
Tickets are available at the door for $8 or $25 for an unlimited entry festival pass that includes a free DVD. A limited number of advance tickets are available online
Friday night's show is 21 and up; the 5 p.m. showings are all ages.
