The New England Mountain Bike Association is launching a mountain bike film festival in 2010. The announcement just came out in order to allow spring, summer, and fall for filming and editing. Submissions are due on November 1st. The event will be held on December 4th.
The film festival seeks to “feature a wide array of video short features from regional filmmakers that capture the spirit, excitement and pleasure of mountain biking in New England.” Submissions are limited to 5 minutes, and will be judged in several categories: Best Production, Best Action, Best Plot, Best Film Featuring Scenic XC Riding, and People’s Choice Award.
The event will debut in the Boston area and then roam throughout New England, evolving a bit as it travels. Check out full details on the NEMBA web site.
