Anonymous Club to make Australian debut at MIFF

Courtney Barnett documentary, Anonymous Club.

Courtney Barnett pulls back the curtain in this intimate first-person exposition on creativity, vulnerability and artistic life on the road.

In 2012, Courtney Barnett started recording music in her inner-Melbourne bedroom and, alongside fellow musician Jen Cloher, founded her own record label, Milk! Records. Since then, the notoriously shy but vastly talented singer/songwriter has released two EPs and two albums, landed a suite of accolades (including Breakthrough Artist at the 2015 ARIAs and Songwriter of the Year at the 2016 APRA Music Awards), and amassed adoring fans across the globe. In 2018, she embarked on the world tour for her album Tell Me How You Really Feel – and director Danny Cohen tagged along to document the journey.

Shot over a three-year period and supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund, Anonymous Club chronicles Barnett’s ups and downs both artistically and personally. Anonymous Club will see its Australian Debut at the Melbourne International Film Festival in August 2021.
