UPDATE: It’s confirmed that the big prize for this event is a GoPro Hero 10 and accessories! Plus multiple other prizes to be won including GoPro kit and lifestyle gear. We also have spot prizes from club sponsors including 10 pass tickets for Gravity’s Gabe airbag.
Open to under 18s, this is a chance for you to get behind the lens or in front of it to show the club and the city your filmmaking skills! You could have your short film screened at The Big Bike Film Night 2022 in Nelson!
GoPro have heroically stumped up to support this event and our talented Nelson youth with some BANGING prizes, but you gotta be in it to win it!
The overall winner will receive a great prize from GoPro (to be announced), with category winners and runners up receiving excellent swag as well.
Kyle “Bare Kiwi” Mulinder has given a workshop providing some precious info from a professional GoPro Content Creator, including tips and tricks for capturing and editing content. This was an insanely informative evening – if you missed out, you are missing out!
Kyle has said he would be happy to run another workshop if there is the demand – email email@example.com if you would be keen to attend this workshop.

EDIT SESSION WITH HENRY JAINE
AND ANOTHER THING…Henry Jaine, being the awesome individual that he is, has offered to support our young talent by providing an edit session to help you edit your films. This is going to take place on the evening of Tuesday 1st February 2022. More details will be provided closer to the time – your films are going to be EPIC!
The filmmaking competition runs from 15th December 2021 to 14th February 2022.
Films are to be submitted by 14th February 2022. You will receive information on how to submit your film via email closer to the time.
Judging will take place between 14th February and 6th /7th April 2022 (Big Bike Film Night).
The Big Bike Film Night is on 6th and 7th April 2022. The finalists will be notified that their film will be shown.
Every short film tells a story. NMTBC and taangata whenua Ngāti Koata have decided we want to see you portray how mountain biking underpins our whānau values: Kaitiakitanga, Whanaungatanga and Kо̄tahitanga.
You can choose one of these three values to tell your story:
– Kaitiakitanga; Guardianship of the Environment. Mountain biking strengthens my connection to the natural world.
– Whanaungatanga; Sense of belonging and kinship created through shared experiences. Mountain biking strengthens my connection to those around me.
– Kо̄tahitanga; Unity, Togetherness, Solidarity, Collective Action. Mountain biking strengthens the community as a whole.
Ngāti Koata work really hard to ensure their land is available to Nelsonians for recreation, so you need to show us how mountain biking helps you live these values. There may even be spot prizes for use of te reo Māori and whakatauki in your films!
There are other criteria that every film must meet to be accepted. If your film does not tick these boxes, it won’t be eligible for judging.
1. Under 2.30 minutes long.
2. By making the film you agree for it to be screened at Big Bike Film Night 2022.
3. You must have written permission from anyone who appears in the film.
4. Any trail riding in your film must be on a sanctioned NMTBC managed trail – at least one visual shot of the trail sign is required in these cases.
5. All riders shown in your film must be wearing helmets and kneepads when riding bikes.
6. All music must be licensed (GoPro Workshop will provide support and options for this).
7. Existing films and footage cannot be used.
8. The film must be MP4 or Mov file format, and minimum 1080p resolution.
9. No adult interference.
Each entry will be evaluated by at least 5 judges, with the finalists being those that score the highest in each film category.
