Defgrip Presents the BMX shorts at the 2010 Bicycle Film Festival

Defgrip is teaming up with the Bicycle Film Festival this year to help find, pick, and curate the BMX portion of the festival. We have lots of info about the festival, submissions and we even put together a video to promote the whole thing, so keep reading to get all the info and make sure to spread the word! We want to do everything we can to make the BMX portion of the festival amazing and we won’t be able to do it with your your help!!


2010 marks the year Defgrip teams up with the Bicycle Film Festival to curate and host the BMX content portion of the festival. By content we mean FILMS!

What have you got to show us and the world?

We are looking for short films under 10 minutes that are innovative, creative and tell a story.

Having made our fair share of videos, we know how much fun it is to film tricks and edit them to music, but we challenge you to come up with a storyline, a way to captivate an audience and get people excited about bikes, especially BMX.


Defgrip and Bicycle Film Festival will collaborate to round-up submissions, screen entries, and make the final selection of films for the 2010 Festival that will screen around the world.

If your film makes it into the Festival, you could get world-wide exposure. With screenings in over 30 cities throughout the globe, the Bicycle Film Festival is an amazing platform to tell your story, get it in front of a new audience and show your work on an international scale!

How do I submit my film?

To submit your film:
Got to for all submission information.

Giving the quick submission deadline, we are accepting films that have already been online, but we are much more enthusiastic about films that are new to show and have yet to be seen.

There is no submission fee

    Yo Defgrip this is exactly what you should be doing instead of reblogging yimmys yayo you know. I mean I’m down that kind of stuff but Defgrip should be where bmx meets that world. Progressive shit like this post. Well done.

    is the 10 minute time limit firm? I have a video of a roadtrip to Ray’s that is 12+ minutes long that seems to be getting some good reviews. Would it qualify?

  11. Harrison Boyce says:

    Nudnik, 12+ minutes is totally cool. We are just looking for films “around” 10 min. Thanks!!

  12. Nudnik says:

    Sweet! Can I enter more than 1 video? I only ask because I have a video I’m working on that’ll be under 10 minutes (I hope) and I’m really stoked on how it’s coming along now but in case I can’t get it finished in time I want to enter a video I just finished a week ago as a safety net, sorta.

  13. Harrison Boyce says:

    yeah, you can enter as many videos as you want!

    Will this BMX related stuff be playing at the BFF in Seattle as well?

  15. Sick! Just obtained a brand-new Pearl and I can now read your blog on my phone’s browser, it didn’t function on my old one.

    And that is an funding risk value taking.
