Sure, sure, we’re all film makers nowadays, carrying everything you need to make a film in our humble pocket.
But nothing compares to that feeling that you get when you show your film and the audience actually gets it.
Or at least, that’s what people tell me is possible if you can actually make a good film, instead of being able to write a lame self referential web post, which seems to be what I bring to the Filmonik team.
Ahem, back to the point.
We’re a community of film makers (with the stray lame web post writer) and each month we screen short films.
You are a director, a film maker, an actor, a musician, a foley artist, a producer, a boom artist, a broom artist, a punter or any combination of whatever-the-hell-kind-of-title you want.
Bring your film and we’ll screen it.
We give out challenges and collaborate together to master the sheer sorcery that is a great short film.
There’s also popcorn, music, lovely creative folk and, of course, lame web post writers.
This month the Melbourne Underground Film Festival (MUFF) is coming to show a short and talk about the fabulous-ness their festival supporting independent and guerilla local and international cinema.
Honestly we can’t e-muff of the films they show and we are thrilled to have them along to Filmonik.
