The St Kilda Film Festival is proud to partner with the Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN) and the Live Music Office to present the I LOVE LIVE MUSIC 60 second short film competition in 2016.

The competition is a new national initiative to promote the importance of Australian contemporary live music, and the social, cultural and economic benefits it brings.

The competition called for filmmakers across Australia to collaborate with local home town musicians to make a 60 second short film in any genre and any style that addressed at least one of the following themes:

  • Imagine life without live Australian music

  • What I love about live Australian music

  • What live Australian music means to me

Ten finalists have been chosen, with the ten short films to be screened at the 2016 SoundKILDA event on Thursday 26 May, with winners announced on the night. 

From the field of ten finalists, the overall winner will be announced on the night of SoundKILDA, with over $12,000 worth of prizes to be awarded.
