Screen and Sound Fest 2014 Competition

The 2nd edition of Screen and Sound Fest – Let’s See The Music – an international project in the form of an open competition for creating film visualizations of distinguished Polish composers’ musical works – is about to start. Filmmakers both professional and amateur can now register and download the compositions for the 2014 competition.

A total of 40,000 Polish złoty (13,000 US dollars) is available in cash prizes!

Screen & Sound Fest is a platform integrating artists’ visual imagination with the world of symphonic music. This edition of the Festival presents filmmakers with a new challenge. The music which you can choose to base your films on is mainly represented by composers long associated with the cinematic medium. Some of the musicians invited to take part – after reading the rules of the contest – even decided which of their pieces were to be included in the project.

The contestants will have to face the challenge of musicians that truly excel in the art of film music.

The organizers have taken care to select a variety of music choices, differing in genre, mood and instrumentation.

Filmmakers can choose among these compositions:

  • Janusz Bielecki – Symfonia Zmysłów (Symphony of Senses)
  • Adrian Konarski – Sailing
  • Abel Korzeniowski – Song for Little Sparrow
  • Michał Lorenc – Lot (Flight)
  • Piotr Moss – Drzewo z krukami (Tree with Crows)
  • Adam Sztaba – Nas Troje (We Three)

Projects need to be sent by 25 August 2014. The final of the contest will take place in October 2014.

With its unique format and international flavor, the the Bielecki Art Foundation’s Screen & Sound Fest. – Let’s See the Music! competition aspires to become one of the most important events of music and film in the country and abroad.

More than 150 filmmakers from all over the world took part in the 1st edition of the contest.
