Roanoke's Bike Shorts Film Festival is now accepting submissions for the 2013 Festival, to be held in at the Taubman Museum of Art as part of Bike Month 2013!

The Bike Shorts Film Festival celebrates short filmmaking of all kinds - documentary, drama, horror, drama, experimental, animation - so long as a bicycle is featured in the film. Prizes will be offred in three categories:
  • Juried prize: Selected by our panel of judges - $300
  • Best original score: Selected by our judges, awarded to the movie that best features an original score or local music, appropriately licensed - $100
  • Audience favorite: To be select at the end of the screening - $100
Past winners of the Bike Shorts Film Festival have had their films screened at the famous Filmed by Bike Festival in Portland, Oregon.

Submissions will be reviewed by The Shadowbox. Filmmakers are encouraged to keep their films short - around 10 minutes. Longer entries will be considered, but shorter entries have a better chance of being accepted. Accepted submissions will be screened at the Taubman Museum of Art and will be posted to the Roanoke Bike Shorts YouTube Channel.

To submit your film, download a copy of our submission guidelines and entry form, then deliver your final film, on DVD, to Bike Shorts Film Festival, PO Box 2569, Roanoke, VA 24010.

Questions about the festival, submission process, or other Bike Month activities should be directed to Jeremy Holmes, Program Director. Technical questions about file format or the film itself should be directed to Jason Garnett at The Shadowbox.
