CLIPPED.TV presents a special night not to be missed with exclusive new Australian / New Zealand MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERES. The audience will be treated to an ‘In Conversation’ to find out how these unreleased clips were created, including short Q+As featuring a number of the talented filmmakers and artists themselves.

This night is brought to you by the team behind CLIPPED Music Video Festival, an annual event dedicated to showcasing the best work by Australian, New Zealand & International artists. It's also presented by Mountain Goat Beer, with support from ADGE, 2SER & Audio Technica.

Since their formation in 2016 CLIPPED has strived to provide opportunities to celebrate the art-form of music videos, with successful events at SUNSTUDIOS (Sydney), The Works Glebe (Sydney), ACMI (Melbourne), Carriageworks (Sydney), NFSA (Canberra) and BIGSOUND (Brisbane). For more information and news about CLIPPED Music Video Festival 2019 (Vivid Sydney) head to :

This event will be hosted by Jarred Keane, a comedian and filmmaker as well as former journalist for The Music, among others. He is a graduate of Sydney Film School and is currently working on his fourth short film.

On occasion we will have special giveaways or prizes available for Audience Choice, however the primary aim of this event is to showcase brand new music videos that would otherwise not be seen on the big screen.

    Loved the night at the Clipped Premieres. Was a great way to engage with other people's work and to see Music Videos on the big screen. It was also a wonderful opportunity to promote and celebrate my own work too. Highly recommend!

  • CLIPPED Music Video Premieres is a welcoming event to premiere music videos. The intimate venue allows really good audience engagement and direct feedback. We loved the Q&A, the host was excellent at keeping the conversation moving. We had a great experience and will apply again with our next project.
