Experiencing Interruptions?

Love: Music, A Festival Short Film

The first in a series of short documentary films discussing unique perspectives from the music industry. Running 15:23, the film explores the hands-on experience of a concert photographer working with two regional music festivals attempting a post-pandemic comeback. Contrasting the colorful action-packed scene up on stage, she learns of the intense struggles, grueling hours and underlying motivations of the dedicated, music-loving teams behind the events. Witnessing and documenting the lengths they'll go to - all in the name of music – brings to light the passion and motivations of those who don’t always share the limelight.

"It was about time I put some of my firsthand experiences into a film... the people I work with and the industry I support have so many stunning behind-the-scenes stories. I'm thrilled to have launched Love: Music as the first of a 12-part series called myForte to share exactly that." (see more: www.kairo.media/myforte)
