Taking over Sydney's seas side hub at GU Film House Cronulla from November 1 is the inaugural Australian Music Week Film Festival.

 
Two documentary feature films will screen: Play Your Gender (Canada) and the world premiere of Breaking The Mould (Australia), which features a number of Australian artists (including The Jezabels, Katie Noonan, The Grates, Jebediah, Abbe May and Stonefield) reflecting on their experiences about the role of gender in Australian music. The film is narrated by Zoë Norton Lodge, best known for her work on the ABC (The Checkout, Story Club & Chaser's Media Circus). This premiere will be accompanied by a short film from Germany, audio engineering. 

 

November 2nd will see the Australian Premiere of Garage Rockin' Craze (Japan/Canada), which highlights the underground Tokyo rock and roll scene, and the first NSW screenings of the highly anticipated documentary on the lead singer of The Church, Something Quite Peculiar: The Life and Times of Steve Kilbey (UK/Australia) - with Steve Kilbey in attendance for a special Q&A!
 
Rounding out the features program will be a special 30th Anniversary screening of the rock documentary Australian Made (Australia), accompanied by a special Q&A featuring the people behind the film, and the Australian Premiere of Trenches of Rock (USA), which takes us into the world of 1980s Christian heavy metal band BLOODGOOD - seemingly hated by mainstream metal and Christians alike, yet able to find an audience of their own. The film is Executive Produced by Oscar and Grammy winner James Moll (Foo Fighters: Back and Forth).
 
A jam-packed session with 7 short films and 15 music videos will also screen together on closing night, delving into everything from the music scene in Haiti (Sound of the Future: Haiti, USA) to a hungover band on the road who can't remember how they lost their door take (Shout at the Ground, New Zealand). Meanwhile, in The Music Stops Here, British director Adam Farkas asks, "when our cities develop, why is culture the first to go?", which will be a topic particularly timely in the lockout law economy of Sydney. 
 
Vera Blue, Explosions in the Sky, WAAX, CLYPSO, Cosmo Thundercat, Wet Lips, Hachiku and Canada's Hawksley Workman are amongst the featured artists of the sprawling music video program.

DATE: 1 - 3 November
