Documentary Film Music Award

The Documentary Film Music Award honours one composition every year, which relates in an extraordinary way with the narrative of a documentary film. It provides a platform for the works of composers and the value of music as an additional means for the narrative in documentary films.

Composers and directors from the German speaking area are invited to submit their original film compositions for a new feature-length documentary film (German speaking production).

The call runs until December 15th, 2017.

Please find here the call details Marketplace

The Marketplace invites the most exciting concepts for documentary film, composition, series, webdoc, VR and interactive media from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. At moderated roundtables filmmakers discuss their projects in development with commissioning editors, producers and distributors – in the competition for prestigious awards and fundings.

The call opens on December 12th, 2017.
