2017 NSMBA Film Festival

Call for NSMBAFF Film Submissions! 
Coming up on February 11th, 2017, Mountain Bike Night at the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival (VIMFF). We are repeating the success formula from last year and incorporate our annual film fest with it's 5 minutes shred-its and give local film makers the chance to get kick ass big ass screen time!

We are combining efforts and best practices with VIMFF (the Vancouver International Mountain Film Festival). And we want your film!

In short: the three favorite submissions will be screened at Mountain Bike Night on Saturday February 11th at the Centennial Theatre in North Vancouver.


We will pre-screen the submitted films and a jury will pick out their three favorites, which will be screened at “NSMBAFF at VIMFF” as part of the Mountain bike night program! This ain’t no pub, this is a serious 660 seat theater! The winner will be announced that evening. 


Like you are used to in the past: send us your 5 minute long documentaries, shorts and features. Everyone from first-timers to life-long filmmakers, who share the passion for mountain biking, is encouraged to enter! Any style is acceptable: animation, experimental, narrative, documentary and music videos are all a go - be creative!


All submissions must include a short write up describing the film and include all participants in the making (riders, editor, creator, etc.), all files, images, and documents must be labeled with the film title and creator's name. Files should be uploaded on Vimeo. If needed with a password. If that is not possible films can be submitted in .mp4 format, preferably HD quality, no larger than 1GB if sent via email, and no longer than 5 minutes. 


Films must be submitted by January 27th 2017, and all information can be sent via email to sieneke@nsmba.ca.
