FILM FEST CALL FOR ENTRIES WITH NEW CATEGORY: “MOVIE MUSIC”

The organizers of the Garden State Film Fesival announce their call for entries, for the 10th Anniversary festival next year in March…

A worldwide “Call for Entries” – including a new category of submissions – has been issued to independent filmmakers by The Garden State Film Festival.

The GSFF will return to Asbury Park for the 10th year, March 22 to 26, 2012

The 2012 Festival returns to the Paramount Theater, on the boardwalk in Asbury Park, New Jersey, March 22 to March 25th, 2012 and will feature film competition for independent filmmakers, open talent casting call, panel discussions, free school field trip opportunity, and opening and closing ceremonies.

A panel of professional judges will select winning entries in a number of categories, including best Feature Length, Short , Documentary (short and feature length), Animation (short and feature length), Music Video, PSA, Commercial and Trailers.

The Garden State Film Festival is the first festival to create a category to recognize the musical compositions and the role music plays in the cinematic arts. To date, it remains the only independent film festival to recognize composers, artists and producers of scores, soundtracks and theme songs judged solely on their own merit. Producers may submit their works, regardless of whether the film has been submitted or accepted.

“We created the Movie Music category in recognition of the role movie music plays in the cinematic arts. NJ has a rich musical history and represents a crossroads of the film and music industries,” making the largest and most respected film festival in NJ the most appropriate forum for the people behind the music.” states Executive Director Diane Raver.

The GSFF invites all music makers who have written and produced tracks for independent films to be recognized for the part they play in the production of fine films. Filmmakers are invited to submit (on CD format) any movie music from an independent film in any category that will be judged by music industry professionals in the new category, dubbed the GSFF Movie Music Track Competition. Information about the Movie Music Track Competition is also on the web site at www.gsff.org.

The Garden State Film Festival, celebrating its tenth anniversary, is New Jersey’s largest and most respected film festival, having attracted records crowds of over 30,000 for the past four years.

The winners of all competitions will be recognized at The GSFF Black Tie Awards Dinner held on March 25th, 2012 at The Crystal Point in Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ.
