Composer Submissions Now Open for the Sound of Silent Film Festival

ACM’s popular Sound of Silent Film Festival celebrates seventeen years of newly commissioned scores performed live to modern silent films this year.  The films are sourced through an international call and feature a wide range of styles and themes.

We’ll commission between twelve and fifteen composers this year depending on how many films are selected.  If you’d like to be considered to score a short modern silent film please contact us!  This is a paid commission that will result in a public performance.
