Music videos inspire collaboration, bring together creatives and provide a vital calling card for talented directors. Famous music video directors who moved on to feature films include Michel Gondry, David Fincher, Spike Jonze and Gus Van Sant.
Join some of the filmmakers and musicians behind 20 of the hottest music videos submitted to this year’s festival at a special screening at one of Byron’s iconic venues, the freshly revamped Byron Bay Brewery.

The finalists include videos from SAFIA, Timber Bones, Boy & Bear, The Secret City, Wren, The Church, Life is Better Blonde, The Lúrra Collective, Airling & Hairy Soul Man.
