Welcome to Australian Music Week Film Festival 2017
Australian Music Week is a conference and artist showcase event which is taking place in the Sydney beachside suburb of Cronulla on November 2 and 3. Accompanying the event will be a film festival, showcasing the best in music-related cinema (long and short form) across 5 days (October 30th to November 3rd), with special events and screenings.
This will be an opportunity to screen your film in front of Australia’s and the world’s most influential and successful promoters, agents, venue bookers, managers, labels and media people. Australian Music Week aims to create business and connections. So if this sounds like something you’d like to be involved in please go ahead and apply to screen your film below, you’ll be hearing from us soon!
Please note that we are only accepting a very small number of films for the 2017 film festival. Applications close 1st September 2017.
To complete this application you’ll need the following info handy: A 25-50 word short bio for our print program guide A 100-300 word bio for our online program guide A 300 dpi (hi-res) press photo A 72 dpi (web) press photo The name, phone number and email address of the best contact for the film. A link to view the film (may be a rough cut of the film, or a trailer).
Just a heads up, you won’t be able to save your application form as you go and come back to it later, so please have everything you need on hand to avoid frustration!
Festival programmer Larry Heath of Heath Media will watch and consider every application that comes through. We are looking for a diverse range of music-focused films from Australia and all over the world – both scripted and documentary, long and short form.
By applying to screen at Australian Music Week you understand that you will not be paid a fee if successful. Australian Music Week, however, covers all production costs including venue hire and will invite all delegates to screenings, as well as include your films in promotional paraphernalia.
We’ll inform all applying filmmakers of the success of their application via email on or before 1st September 2017. If you apply within the last 48 hours of the application process, however, do note it may take a couple extra days to get back to you.
Successful filmmakers will receive access to the film festival, as well as one 2-day delegate pass to the conference.
