Filmonik #70 Open short films livestream

The 70th Filmonik screening with short films and live director&cast interviews will happen on May 26th. Watch this space and for direct live-stream links (and backup links!) posted closer to the date.

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 equal doses just by the luck of it. Films are followed by live QAs with the directors. Ask your questions in the chat.

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 and current but older films and premieres certainly welcome too with priority given to Victorian filmmakers.

Watch March’s screening to see the format of the interviews:

Make a short film in isolation and send it to us for the May Filmonik show. 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).


Filmonik is part of the worldwide Kino movement active in more than 70 cities around the world but super decentralised and without any of that corporate stuff going on. (
