GSFF is proud to be the first film festival to recognize the vast and varied achievements of musical composers, in the art of film making. Music sets its own backdrop, creates a mood, conveys attitude and emotion, re-enforces action and rounds out the complete vision of the film. Movies without music are as unnatural as movies without popcorn.
