CLIPPED.TV Launches Music Video Series At Golden Age Cinema With Mountain Goat & 2SER

In an Australian first, following on from the success of the annual CLIPPED Music Video Festival, CLIPPED.TV have launched a bimonthly music video series at Golden Age Cinema & Bar with Mountain Goat Beer & 2SER.

CLIPPED founder Samuel Bright gave us some insight into the decision to get the series underway: “We had originally pioneered a Premieres segment as part of our annual event, followed by a few trial standalone nights and quickly discovered an immense enthusiasm from creators to be part of it. Being a filmmaker myself and knowing how much it means or how rare it is for the opportunity to showcase music videos on the big screen, I decided that it be a platform we support regularly.

Events will take place on the third Tuesday of every second month, where there will be a carefully curated selection of unreleased clips on the big screen followed by Q+As with the artists/filmmakers. After the screenings there is also a networking happy hour in the iconic Golden Age Bar, with special discounted drinks courtesy of Mountain Goat.

We’ve always been passionate about supporting music and the arts in Australia so we’re very proud to announce our partnership with CLIPPED. It really brings something different to Sydney’s film and music event calendar and Golden Age Cinema is such a perfect location. It’s exciting to help bring filmmakers, musicians and audiences together in this way for what will be a really unique experience.” – Mountain Goat

This was not something I expected when I set out to make this music video.”

Film colourist Daniel Pardy (VANDAL) was also in attendance on the night: “It was fantastic to discuss the creative process of these pieces and make plans for future collaborations. Golden Age Cinema is the perfect venue for such an occasion given their history with successfully screening exclusive titles and special events.
