I Love Live Music 60 Second Film Competition

The Australian Music Industry Network (AMIN), the Live Music Office and the St Kilda Film Festival, have teamed up to bring you a fantastic opportunity!








Music and Film have always gone together like cheese and crackers, and the I Love Live Music 60 Second Film Comp (ILLM60) aims to highlight this relationship, while also shining a spotlight on the importance of live music in Australia.


So, what do you have to do? The ILLM60 competition is putting the call out to filmmakers across Australia to collaborate with artists from their hometown to create a 60 second film that covers one of the following themes:


  • Imagine life without live Australian music
  • What I love about live Australian music
  • What live Australian music means to me


The film can be any style or genre you like, but it must covers at least 1 of the above themes.
