Aidan Prewett

Aidan Sun Flare Headshot Full SizePrewett 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 has been distributed commercially in North America.

Prewett's films often feature a strong music focus, from the historical Me and the Devil Blues, about the legendary Robert Johnson, to the ‘60’s rock/politics documentary A Venue for the End of the World and the aural addiction of Me, Myself & iPod. His non-music documentaries include Selected Works of Uncle Neill and most recently The Trump Antidote. Prewett's films have been shot on location across the globe and feature a host of entertainment luminaries. His first non-fiction book is entitled Woodstock at Fifty.

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. In book form, Woodstock at Fifty: A Venue for the End of the World will fill 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.
