The show me shorts film festival is starting up today, showcasing all sorts of local and international filmmaking talent. 
One of those includes the film Proof, written, directed, and produced by Jonny Brugh. 

The film tells a story of a grieving man desperately trying to find evidence of an afterlife, at any cost.
Liam had a chat with Jonny about the film, which will be showing as a part of the ‘When The Spirit Takes Flight’ compilation.

Phil Elverum is the primary songwriter, performer, and producer for  Mount Eerie and The Microphones. For around 27 years, Phil has been creating some of the most revered and critically acclaimed indie folk of all time. His music veers between stripped back acoustic guitar recordings, to terrifyingly loud and distorted sonic experiments.

Mount Eerie is currently on the verge of a return to Aotearoa, playing  in Tāmaki Makaurau, Pōneke, and Ōtepoti with Black Belt Eagle Scout - another band from Washington State that will bring new and classic Mount Eerie tunes to a new, full band soundscape. 

I’ve been obsessed with the music of The Microphones and Mount Eerie since I was fourteen. I think I had the Glow Part 2 album cover as my profile picture on Google for about four years, so suffice to say it was a real privilege to interview him. We had a yarn about the upcoming shows, his previous tours of Aotearoa, twenty years of the Mount Eerie name, and more.

The winners were announced last weekend at a sold-out Auckland Town Hall, showcasing 26 diverse acts across five categories: dance, solo instrumental, group vocal, solo vocal and bands. To hear about the competition, its unique beginnings and what it means for Rangatahi, Frances caught up with Gene Rivers, Auckland Council Arts and Culture Programmer.

The Kit is a brand new subscription-based resource facility located on the basement level of Artspace Aotearoa in the former sorting room of the Tāmaki Makaurau central post office. Like the sorting room, The Kit seeks to sift and connect, making sure skills, support, and cohort are enabled post-art school, or as practitioners seek to deepen their professional capabilities. To hear about the initiative and its Open Day on Saturday Frances caught up with Artspace Aotearoa's Sally McMath.
