25 Tracks – Documentary – 52:55 – Canada Premiere
Dir. Fiona Cochrane, Australia
*Nominated for Best Music and Dance Related Film, Best Documentary Short, Best Foreign Film, Best Sound
Synopsis: 25 are two unknown, indie songwriters in a bare bones studio on a train in the industrial West of Melbourne – Australia’s music capital. 25 plan to write, record then release a fresh song every two weeks of the year. Cath loves pop, Nick loves garage rock. She wants jazz flute, he wants a dirty guitar. Is this ever going to work, are they totally deluded, is it an impossible goal? Will anyone even care or notice in the century of information and product overload? This is not reality TV, it’s not a competition, it’s real musicians doing their own thing.
