Want to submit a film? Great! Our 2022 collection has been finalised, and we will be accepting film submissions now for the 2023 Collection. 

Any film made during and after 2017 is eligible.

There are no fees to submit your film. We have a desire to see others succeed and are non-competitive; with all participating films in the Big Bike Film Night 2023 collection receiving a merit of financial reward.

Celebrating our 9th year, the Big Bike Film Night provides an opportunity for film makers to showcase their work, receive merit, help build international exposure, and contribute towards a stronger and vibrant bike culture.

The films may be about road cycling, mountain biking, BMX, adventure based, documentaries, humorous or something entirely different; we are open minded about the content but it must show bicycles in some form, this is the unifying factor.

We want to bring to our attendees films that move us, make us think, and most importantly of all films that inspire us to get out and ride.

If you have a film that meets this criteria we invite you to submit your film for pre-selection consideration.

Please view our Terms & Conditions for the guidelines, requirements and details for submitting films.
