Come meet Rocky Mountain Freerider, Wade Simmons, and celebrate the new season of riding with an evening of great videos, food and drink. Tickets are limited; last year's event sold out, was moved to a larger location, and sold out again, so order your tickets soon.

A $30 ticket gets you some Redbones BBQ, "mountain bike bingo" with prizes from our sponsors, clips from last year's awards... not to mention the screening of this year's best local mountain bike films! All proceeds will benefit NEMBA. You'll also get a chance to hang out and chat with Wade Simmons, one of the world's top freeriders and all around good guy.

See Your Film on the Big Screen! Submit your Videos by March 24th 2004

Are you a budding filmmaker? Submit your video to the Boston Mountain Bike Video Awards! Prizes will be given in three categories: Best Production, Best Riding, and Most Entertaining, plus the audience will select a People's Choice award. All videos will be eligible for every category, and all finalists will be screened at the awards night.
Videos must be received by Wednesday, March 24th 2004 at:

NEMBA Video Awards
P.O. Box 2221
Acton, MA 01720-6221

Each person may submit up to 2 videos; both of your films may be finalists. Judges representing the filmmaking and bike industries will evaluate the videos based on originality, style, and entertainment value. Videos must be no longer than 10 minutes, but we strongly suggest keeping them to 5-6 minutes each. The number of finalists will depend on the length and quality of submissions.

Some aspect of New England riding culture is preferred, whether it's local footage, local filmmakers, or local riders. Videos can feature cross-country, freeriding, trials, urban assault, touring, racing, or your own unique interpretation of mountain bike culture. Creativity is a big plus.

All submissions will remain the property of the contestant. By submitting material, contestants take responsibility for any necessary releases and permissions for copyrighted materials and grant NEMBA the right to use clips for publicity purposes.

Mark your name, film title, email address, and phone number directly ON THE VIDEO. Films may be submitted in miniDV, VHS, or DVD (miniDV recommended). Submissions will not be returned unless entrants pick them up at the event or include a SASE. You will receive an email confirmation of your submission; if you do not hear from us by Saturday the 27th 2004, please contact us immediately. For more information, email Krisztina Holly at traildoctor@mit.edu or call 781-862-2062. Finalists will be notified 2 weeks before the event and will receive one free admission.
