Music videos inspire collaboration, allow creatives to test their ingenuity and provide a vital calling card for talented directors. Famous music video directors who moved on to feature films include Michael Bay, David Fincher, Spike Jonze and Gus Van Sant.
Music too can be a subversive art form, challenging the status quo. Combine music with film and you have a potent force for social reform. Many of the 20 short films selected for this year’s Music Video Showcase have serious themes, but get their points across in a fun way. You may even dance!
Join the filmmakers and musicians behind many of the music videos submitted to this year’s festival at this special screening at Byron’s most iconic venue.
