Its official, the Australian MTB Film Fest is going ahead at the Alpenflow Epic in Mt Buller in March. We have sponsors, prizes and a cinema confirmed.
Open to everyone, we are committed to help young filmers, editors and riders, as they are as much a part of riding as anyone else.
The theme is ‘Good News’.
Edit time is up to 4 minutes. Open to all interpretations, from creative narratives to straight riding clips to short movies. We’re over bad news, and we want to see how you interpret the theme.
Start stacking clips and give the page a follow. If you’ve ever wanted to see your work on a cinema screen, here is your chance.
As a ‘cherry’ on top, many of our sponsors are looking for filmers/riders in the future and this is a way to go to the top of their list.
If you are a brand, we’re open to submissions as well, just pop us a message and we’ll make sure everyone is on the same page!
Some tech details
Firstly, we apologise, that is way too short of a time to film and edit, so with that in mind, we are accepting previously used clips and edits.
- The location is the cinema in Mt Buller – we’re working on streaming the edits at the same time.
- The judging format (for at least one prize) is going to be a little different, we will have the videos online, and want to award the winner a contract to film, and the judging will be based purely on objective metrics (reach, engage, click through etc) based on allotted demographic.
- We accept 2022 may be a beta version, but hope you are onboard with the vision. Tag your filmer and editor, start pulling some old clips into a timeline. If you are a company that wants evidence that a filmer/editor/rider can gather conversion, send us a message and we’ll happily make you a prize in the comp if you are proposing payment for talent in the contract.
We’re working very hard to make this area of the industry far more transparent, and to connect those that can provide value to those that need value.
We envisage that demographics would match company needs. More info on this soon, but from cinematic pans across beautiful scenery that may capture the over 25s, to straight clip bangers that may attract a tiktok generation, we are working on making this worthwhile.
Upload info coming soon.
