CLIPPED MV Fest Call for Submissions

CLIPPED Music Video Festival, Australia’s only festival dedicated to the art of music video, returns in its 6th year as part of Vivid Sydney, one of the world's largest annual festival of creativity and innovation. This year, CLIPPED is expanding their International Program with a broadcast show to be live-streamed on Friday, August 27th Entries will be considered for the following four categories:

Claire George "Northern Lights" (Brian Charles Lehrer, dir.)

Artist's statement : 

I wrote “Northern Lights” about someone I loved and lost to opioid addiction. I wanted to eternalize the memories we shared before they became distant or distorted, as they do when you retell or revisit them. After they passed, they appeared regularly in my dreams. Waking up I would relive the loss and beg for an alternate reality.

Cool Company "Halos" (Waley Wang, dir.)

Cool Company narrates the story of a romantic couple's wedding day being struck with an apocalypse, told in a collection of intricate zoom shots in surreal sets, trapped on a VHS tape. Inspired by fashion, 70's & 80's horror films, Peter Greenaway, and French Cinèma du look. It's a deconstructed melodrama about love and memories persisting even when everything goes catastrophically wrong.
