Application Film Music Competition


International Film Music Competition 2018

One film – five musical experiences – one winner

Once a year the Zurich Film Festival and the Tonhalle-Orchestra Zurich collaborate with the Forum Filmmusik to present the International Film Music Competition.

Composers of any age, any nationality and any domicile who have not set more than 3 feature films (longer than 60 minutes) to music are eligible to participate.

The competition requires entrants to compose a brand new score for a short film of about 5 minutes. The film will be chosen by the organiser and provided to the participants.

A jury with renowned international experts will pick five entries to participate in the finals. These compositions will be world-premiered at a film music concert in the frame of the Zurich Film Festival. On the same evening, the winner will be chosen by an international jury and awarded the Golden Eye “Best International Film Music” endowed with CHF 10 000.

More information will follow shortly on this website.
