Sound of Silent Film Music Submission

Thank you for your interest in our Sound of Silent Film Festival!  In 2018 the event will happen on April 25 at the Music Box Theater in Chicago. This will be our thirteenth year!  Sound of Silent Film features newly commissioned scores performed live to short modern silent films.

The films are typically between 4 and 17 minutes long and they range between comedy, drama, experimental, animated and everything in between.  The deadline for submission is December 10, 2017. If selected your score will be due by March 15 2018.

Please fill out the form below, including at least one sample of a recent chamber piece, and your bio and let us know if you have any questions.  We’ll announce the results by December 20.  The commission fee is $500.
