Prewett completed his Master of Film & Television in 2009 and was presented with the coveted Victorian College of the Arts Best Achievement in Direction, as well as Best Documentary Script. His documentaries have won awards and honours at film festivals in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, and have been distributed commercially in North America.
His debut non-fiction book, Woodstock at Fifty: Anatomy of a Revolution was published by Political Animal Press in 2019. In the lead-up to the fiftieth anniversary of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, Prewett found himself thinking back to the interviews he conducted when filming his 2016 film A Venue for the End of the World. The book fills the gaps left by the film’s limited timeframe. The discussions and interviews conducted for the film led to a multitude of stories that were both thoughtful and highly entertaining. So now, at the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock, Prewett has the perfect opportunity to tell these unique stories.
"An in-depth look at the event that redefined the last 50 years. There have been several books published to mark the 50th anniversary of the most famous musc festival....Aidan Prewett may well have written the most interesting of them."
