The 69th Filmonik monthly screening will be live streamed again in April. We’re about up-and-coming and established filmmakers presenting their amazing, fun, relevant and urgent short films to an audience hungry for the freshest films made around Melbourne. It’s non-commercial, non-competitive and uncurated with the films submitted picked to play at random the night of the screening. Expect under-5-minute comedies, dramas, animations, docos, experimental, trash, action films, and everything in between in generally equal doses just by the luck of it. Films are followed by live QAs with the directors. Ask your questions in the chat.
FILMMAKER CHALLENGE: Make a short film in isolation and send it to us for the April Filmonik show. You could even avoid talking about COVID-19 in your short. Split screens, video conference movies, actors seemingly in the same room but being recorded in different suburbs, green screen tricks… have fun, go places (without actually going).
FILMMAKERS: If you have a short film shorter than 5-6 minute that can be published part of the Filmonik show then submit it to us and we’ll be in touch to show you how we’ll do the interview via video call. Isolation films are fun but older films and premieres certainly welcome too.
