The first annual Cariboo Mountain Bike Film Festival will enter into the judging phase today, as all submissions become due.
“With only a few entries so far, it looks as though the first year will be on the modest side of things,” said Justin Calof, executive director for the Cariboo Mountain Bike Consortium.
“This is the first time a mountain bike specific film festival has been introduced in the Cariboo. We heard the Banff Film Festival, which now attracts more than 300 entries from across the globe every year, started with but a few scant films when it began over 40 years ago. So, we expected to start small.”
Calof said next year, if the CMBC decides to run the competition again, they’re thinking of expanding the festival to include all mountain bike art.
“So, you still have a few days to get your submission in,” he said. “We’ll report back next week if we meet the minimum number of entrants to hold the competition. We’re also working with Red Shred’s to co-ordinate a Sitka Film, a Live Concert and Film Festival Screenings on Oct. 4.”
