Video: 10 Filmmakers, 10 Stories - Race Face Creator Series Trailer

Sep 18, 2019
by Race Face  

Creator Series is a community-focused initiative started by Race Face to provide a chance for filmmakers, accomplished or aspiring, to tell meaningful mountain bike-related stories that live beyond the standard fare of shreddits and product commercials that seem to be so prevalent in our everyday lives.

We wanted to fully fund projects that maybe didn't have the resources to be told before. The global mountain bike community is an amazing collection of characters, stories and locations and we wanted to create a path for filmmakers to bring their passion projects to life, to inspire and remind us of the connections that bind us together as riders.



When we put out the call for filmmakers, we were sure what to expect. After a slow start where entries trickled in, we received hundreds of proposals and pitches and had to bunker down to go through them all. After much debate and many tough decisions, we pared the pitches down to a group of 10 filmmakers with unique stories that we wanted to see shared with the world.


From Keegan Wright finding his way through Bali to Bill the trail builder in Nanaimo, a blooming mountain bike community in Newfoundland to a hopeful bike newbie racing the BC Bike Race after a life-altering injury, and more - we've got a great schedule of films for ahead!

 I remember reading through the conditions for entry when they announced the competition way back and was disapointed when I saw it stated the competition was only open to North American film makers. If a competition is aiming to explore meaningful, unique and diverse stories then surely it shouldn't be limited to film makers from one continent alone?

 Really looking forward to seeing these and agree, perhaps the next version can go beyond North America?

 Don't know what you're complaining about. Judging by your flag, you live in Whistler. Wink

 @CharlieEdis We originally wanted the Creator Series to be open to the global community of filmmakers but for reasons beyond our control, for this year, we had to restrict it to North American based entries. We are working on solutions to allow us to widen the entry beyond NA for future Creator Series seasons. We are sorry for your disappointment but we still encourage you to check out the 10 films as they are truly amazing and inspiring!

 These are videos that the creator invest every bit of themselves not for monetary gain but to express in an art form what we all love . Thank you Race Face.
