Filmed by Bike

If you are a BIPOC filmmaker and interested in funding, the Filmed by Bike BIPOC Filmmaker Grant is available: https://filmedbybike.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Grant-Prog-Main.gif

This year the Filmed by Bike festival had an amazing virtual festival featuring (exclusively) Black, Indigneous, and People of Color, and bicycles. The festival is available to stream and runs on a PWYW basis so everyone can afford to watch.

Co-Produced by The Brown Bike Girl, tickets for The High Vis Film Fest are pay-what-you-can and all proceeds benefit Brown Hope and our BIPOC Filmmaker Grant, Presented by Machines for Freedom.
