It has been 9 years since the birth of Sound On Screen Film Festival, bringing these audio and visual art forms together with carefully curated titles from around the world and locally.
Join in on keeping cinema culture alive (beyond the next super-hero cash-in), reinforce your love of music via film and get exposed to fascinating genres / music culture you may not be aware of.
This year they’re bringing you another exciting collection of international music-related movies and documentaries, covering everything from Rock, Techno, Black Metal and Industrial music, to legends in the shape of Queen’s Freddie Mercury and a dress-up anniversary screening of Mike Myers’ Wayne’s World!
