Film Music Competition 2022

Once a year the Zurich Film Festival and the Tonhalle-Gesellschaft Zürich AG collaborate with the Forum Filmmusik to present the International Film Music Competition.

The springboard for talented film music composers from around the globe, this year’s International Film Music Competition requires participants to score the award-winning short film THE FOUNDLING by Barney Cokeliss.

A jury of internationally renowned music professionals and filmmakers will nominate three works from the competition entries. These three winning compositions will be premiered at the Tonhalle Zürich during the Zurich Film Festival on September 29, 2022 by the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich under the musical direction of Frank Strobel and in the presence of the nominees. A jury of experts will select a winner, who will receive the Golden Eye for “Best International Film Music 2022”, an award endowed with a 10’000 Swiss franc cash prize.

Registration will be possible starting April 11, 2022. Early-bird ends on May 2, 2022.
The submission deadline is on June 6, 2022.
