Clips of Faith 2012

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

In its third fabulous year, Clips of Faith is a beer-toting, film-traveling, nonprofit-benefiting show that’s coming to 18 cities coast-to-coast, including Knoxville! We took our love for beer and fans and put them together in this one-of-a-New-Belgium-kind event. You’ll get to try our most esoteric beer offerings – up to 16 varieties on tap! – and pair them with inspiring short films created by fans. And good news—100% of the proceeds from beer sales benefit the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club.

Fans of New Belgium’s Lips of Faith beers know these unique brews are not always easy to find. There will also be your favorite New Belgium classics and you can try them in 3oz samples, or a 12oz pour. Served up by our local beneficiary volunteers, there’s plenty of beer fun to be had with our other traveling tricks and contests. Plus, local vendors will be serving food. When the darkness engulfs us, the films start rolling and you get to cozy up on your blanket or chairs and enjoy the show.

We’ll eat and drink until it gets dark—which is when the films will start rolling-and we’ll cozy up on our blankets and chairs and enjoy the show.

Thanks to New Belgium Brewing for their continued support of Appalachian Mountain Bike Club!

Bring Your Film to the Inflatable Big Screen!
New Belgium Brewing is Seeking Film Submissions for “Clips of Faith” Tour

You make the film. We make the beer.

New Belgium Brewing, maker of Fat Tire Amber Ale, is calling all filmmakers, beer-lovers and videographers! New Belgium’s Clips of Faith (www.clipsoffaith.com) is in its third year and searching for short films of the tasty variety.

Clips of Faith is an 18-city tour where people can savor beers from New Belgium’s esoteric Lips of Faith series, along with some popular classics, while enjoying short films and raising money for local nonprofits. Since its inception two years ago, the tour has raised more than $91,000 for local philanthropic organizations and shown nearly 40 amateur films. Clips of Faith will finish its tour Knoxville on October 12, 2012.

“We really enjoy working with all the creative folks in our community of beer drinkers to bring the event together,” said Christie Catania, Clips of Faith Manager-at-Large. “The whole evening is a remarkable collaboration of passions—hand-made films with hand-made beer. We look forward to bringing out some new unique beers and putting together the final cut of the 2012 show.”

Over the last two seasons, New Belgium has received nearly 200 film submissions, with approximately 20 selections making each tour. This year, all selected entries will receive a custom gift from New Belgium and screenings in 18 cities.

To enter, upload your film by April 16 to www.clipsoffaith.com. The guidelines include:

  • The film must be no more than seven minutes.
  • Filmmakers must be at least 21 years old.
  • The film can cover any subject/genre, but extra points go to films that include New Belgium folly: craft beer, sustainability, whimsy, adventure or culture.
  • Keep it clean.
  • Filmmakers must secure rights for all elements included in the film.

In 2010 and 2011, some of the selected storylines included a paddling trip through whaling waters, a talking beer bottle sketch comedy and an absurdist spaghetti western. Film genres ranged from comedic shorts, animation and environmental documentaries to tales about the beloved bike.
