Film Festivals

 

The film festivals listed below are but a few examples of events offering opportunities for musicians, recording artists, producers, composers and songwriters. Each festival included here offers one or more of the following opportunities:

- Music performance / showcase opportunities

- Accepts and presents music films / music videos

- Produces and releases music compilations in association with the festival

If you're a music-creator -- a Musician, Recording Artist, Producer, Composer or Songwriter -- don't underestimate the value of becoming involved with film festivals in your region. These can be an incredible opportunity to meet and network with filmmakers, directors, producers, music supervisors and others working in the visual media industries.

This list is but a small sampling of the thousands of film festivals that take place annually around the globe. We believe film festivals represent great opportunities for music creators. Most cities have at least one film festival, or have one nearby. Consider volunteering or working for the festival -- It's a fantastic way to meet filmmakers, the festival organizers and members of the film community.

Film festivals vary widely in scope, focus, purpose, approach, size and many other aspects. This article gives great background on the many different types of film festivals to be found and how they may differ: Wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_festival
