Congratulations to Oly Mingo for winning the $250 prize from Schmid Malone Attorneys. His entry, “Flow: Elements of Freeride,” was the close winner in the Audience Favorite voting at the end of the show last night. With great filming, a very talented rider, amazing scenery and lots of cool graphics, his film captures what the BBFF is all about: merging a great riding experience with the creativity needed to make an entertaining short film.

We had two runners up. First was the “Day of the Dog” by Colt Maule. Excellent filming and editing along with a couple really sweet trail running dogs, everyone loved the film.

Next was a great edit from Bend native Gunnar Oliphant showing the playful style and insane talent of Bend rider Kirt Voreis and his crew from AllRide on a trip to Retallack.

Get out those cameras and start your winning entry for next year!

Doors at 6, Show at 7



Experience and celebrate Bend’s rich cycling culture through locally produced short films at the fifth annual Bend Bicycle Film Festival.

The BBFF highlights our talented filmmakers, riders and storytellers who share a passion for all kinds of cycling.

Tickets will go on sale in mid-April: $12 pre-sale at the Tower Theater box office and website and $15 at the door on the night of the show.

“People who attend the show are always impressed with the variety and quality of the films,” says BBFF Director, Bill Warburton. “We’ve shown real documentaries, fake documentaries, short comedies, stop-action creative pieces and of course live action bike riding. The Festival captures the current interests of Bend’s cycling community.”

All proceeds from admission and raffle tickets will benefit the Bend Endurance Academy, a local non-profit offering programs for cycling, Nordic skiing and rock climbing. Learn more about the Academy’s programs for youth, juniors and adults at Bend Endurance


Local filmmakers are encouraged to submit their original works. Submissions will be accepted until 6pm on May 15.
