When the Austin Music Video Festival made its debut in 2015, founders Jeremy Roye, Samantha Gallion and Anthony Erickson knew it had to make one hell of an entrance. It had to be an extraordinary celebration, not just some video retrospective. Now in its fifth year, the festival continues championing cutting edge visual creativity by local artists, featured alongside nationally and internationally-recognized names in the music industry. This year’s celebration includes five days of music video premieres and screenings, all kinds of parties and panels, and the AMVF Award Show at the Austin School of Film as the grand finale.
This year’s AMVF kicks off tonight with a performance by Me Nd Adam (featured on today’s Austin Music Minute), and a DJ set by songwriter and KUTX’s Song Confessional host Walker Lukens at The Parish, 214 E. 6th St. Doors at 9 p.m. You can check out the AMVF’s website for the full schedule and ticket information.
