Each year the Los Angeles Film Festival features a program they have titled ‘Eclectic Mix’ which brings together a number of music videos (remember those?) that span style, artists and countries and act almost as a shorts program, with a really good soundtrack (and all on the big screen!) This year marked my third time attending the program for what may have been its strongest showing yet. The theater was notably packed and watching videos from France, Japan, Canada and the United States was not only interesting, it was a lot of fun. I have rounded up my top 8 videos out of the mix that combined great music with interesting or funny narratives and visuals that prove music videos may be a dying medium (“I want my MTV”), but it certainly should not be a forgotten one.
