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.
This is the first competition of this kind in Film Festival History. Submit any original movie music from an independent or other film, TV, Web Series and it will be judged by music professionals with awards in multiple categories. Please submit a CD or upload the track of any original music track (one entry/one track per CD or upload please!) from any of the film categories (please specify what category the film falls under -Documentary, Feature, Animation, etc. – but do NOT send us the actual film! We want the music to stand on its own merit!). It is not necessary for the film the music is from to be entered in the festival. This is a competition all about the music!
To submit your piece of original music from a film please go to http://www.withoutabox.com/login/3773
Or you can submit via Filmfreeway.com as well.
You may choose to upload the music or mail it to us.
If you choose to mail it, please mark the outside of the package MUSIC COMPETITION with the Tracking ID. If you have any questions please contact us DIRECTLY at firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-908-7050 – do NOT contact Film Freeway or Withoutabox Customer Support about this particular category. We are happy to answer any and all of your questions!
**IMPORTANT: WAB will kick your entry out unless the title of this project is different than the film if it was entered as well. For instance please change the name of the song to ” Blahdeblah the Music Track” if the film “Blahdeblah” was also entered.
