Online-hääletus konkursil VELOBerlin Film Award 2014

VELOBerlin Film Award 2014 online-voting kicked off! - Enjoy 18 bicycle shorts!

See the films / the competition here:

We started cycling fun: 18 films made it into the final round, to compete for 5 prizes worth €2500 in total: Narrative shorts, documentaries, clips and animated films about the love of cycling and bicycles.

Till 29 March 2014, all selected films can be watched and voted for online at : You are the jury - the worldwide online audience!

Velokonzept and interfilm Berlin announced the second edition of the international online award for bicycle films - the VELOBerlin Film Award - in autumn 2013. More than 200 short films from 45 countries and all continents were entered - an overwhelming response!

Due to the astounding success of the first edition in 2013, the organisers have made the VELOBerlin Film Award 2014 even more accessible. Bicycle-film-fans are now able to experience the entire film selection via computer, smart phone and tablet as well as "offline" and "live" at three bicycle trade fairs: München (19-23.2.2014), rad+outdoor Bremen (8-9.3.2014) and VELOBerlin (29-30.3.2014). The winners of the online vote will be announced on 30 March 2014 at VELOBerlin.

See bike couriers in Dublin risk their lives whilst weaving through daily traffic, or remarkable aesthetes who find spiritual fulfilment when creating custom bikes - these people clearly adore their bicycles. Almost as much as the "Pedalophile"and his Power Ranger's bike or the little girl in Indonesia who selflessly gives away her most treasured possession. Indeed, love can be tragic too - especially when an object of desire has suddenly vanished. But there are happy endings too, especially when bikes fall in love with one another...

The directors of the five winning films will be rewarded with valuable prizes from Riese & Müller, Ortlieb and Abus worth €2500 in total.

The competition is organised by velo:konzept and interfilm Berlin. VELOBerlin Film Award's exclusive partner is Europe's leading bicycle tyre manufacturer Schwalbe (Ralf Bohle GmbH).

Award Ceremony at the VELOBerlin fair: March 30 2014, Filmbühne
