Announcing the

GSFF Movie Music Competition


This is the first competition of this kind in Film Festival History. Submit any original movie musicfrom an independent film and it will be judged by music professionals with awards in multiple categories. Please submit a CD of any original music track (one entry/one track per CD please!) from any of the film categories (please specify what category the film falls under -Documentary, Feature, Animation, etc. – but do NOT send us the actual film! We want the music to stand on its own merit!). It is not necessary for the film the music is from to be entered in the festival. This is a competition all about the music!

Please mark the outside of the package MUSIC COMPETITION with the Tracking ID. If you have any questions please contact us DIRECTLY at or 877-908-7050 – do NOT contact Film Freeway or Withoutabox Customer Support about this particular category. We are happy to answer any and all of your questions!

**IMPORTANT: WAB will kick your entry out unless the title of this project is different than the film if it was entered as well. For instance please change the name of the song to ” Blahdeblah the Music Track” if the film “Blahdeblah” was also entered.

FINAL Deadline is December 1, 2017

***Still confused about this category???

The idea behind this category was, we noticed so many indie films have great music tracks, but the film isn’t always wonderful. Think Dr. Zhivago..and you immediately hear “Laura’s Theme”..but can’t remember anything about the movie but a whole lot of snow.. We are looking for tracks that stand on their own..just like “Laura’s Theme”…not necessarily a series of sound effects if you catch our drift ( no pun intended!!). So if you know of a piece of music like that, we hope you will submit! Winners are announced prior to the festival and are played before and after each screening event.
