VELOBerlin Film Award – giving bicycle culture a frame.
Let’s pedal again! Celebrating the freedom of cycling and the diversity of short film, the third edition of VELOBerlin Film Award calls for bike short films from November 17th 2014!
Cycling is a global phenomenon that also manifests locally. Which is why the VELOBerlin Film Award searches the world for diverse films that deal with all manner of topics relating to bikes and respective local cycling cultures: Ranging from the hype surrounding urban cyclists to the experiences gathered while travelling, the feeling of two-wheeled freedom is common to all cyclists, regardless of whether they ride through deserts and valleys or the urban jungles of the worldwide metropolises.
For its third edition, Velokonzept and interfilm Berlin are once again calling on international filmmakers to send in their short films about cycling. The steadily rising interest in urban cycling culture is reflected in increasingly more cycle-themed shorts – both online on video platforms and “offline” in cinemas, whether fictional, documentary, animated or experimental. From all submissions, 15 – 20 films will be selected to compete in the online competition that aims to wittily and artfully highlight the eclectic viewpoints of the world-wide cycling phenomenon. In February / March 2015, all nominated films will be presented on the award website to face the appraisal of the online audience, which in turn, determines the winners of the VELOBerlin Film Award.
