The 8th Annual PARK CITY FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL (PCFMF) offers great opportunities for film composers and filmmakers to gain exposure while presenting a unique program of narrative, documentary, short, and performance films alongside round tables, panel discussions, and showcase concerts.

With five submission categories each offering awards of Gold, Silver, and Bronze, as well as Jury’s Choice, Director’s Choice, and Audience Choice, there’s no shortage of opportunity for recognition. Films submitted for the Competition need not be premieres or completed during a restricted timeframe. In addition, the Festival awards at least one Outstanding Achievement in Film Music Award each year to a film composer for a body of work.

A large number of excellent composers and the films they have scored have been recognized in past competitions, including Philip Glass, Ryan Shore, George Shaw, Vincent Gillioz, Brian Satterwhite, Douglas Romayne, David Raiklen, Lisle Moore, Patrick Kirst, Nicholas Pavkovic, and Alan Williams. Composers/arrangers Conrad Pope, Mark Northam of Film Music Magazine, Hummie Mann, and Dennis Dreith have presented seminars or participated in panel discussions. Films previously presented in competition have included hundreds of exceptional films over the years including THE GOSPEL SONGS OF BOB DYLAN, LUBBOCK LIGHTS, NATIVE SON, NUMB, POPE JOAN, SMILE, and ZOMBIE PROM.
