FINALISTS ANNOUNCED FOR THIRD EDITION OF THE MONTREAL INTERNATIONAL FILM SCORING COMPETITION

 

The Specialized Diploma Program in Film Music at the Université du Québec à Montréal and the Rendez-vous du cinéma québécois film festival are proud to announce the names of the finalists for the third edition of the Montreal International Film Music Composition Competition.

 

Over 200 applications were submitted by composers from a dozen countries.  

 

According to Mathieu Lavoie, composer, professor at UQAM and director for the film scoring competition: “this year, [the competition] tested a new formula, inviting composers to submit a written score for string quartet for one of the films, which allows its live interpretation during the gala. It was a great success! We have also constituted an international jury, inviting Italian composer Fabio Frizzi, and american music producer and author Andy Hill.  

 

As usual the selection process was not easy. Much of the music that was not nominated deserves to be listened and appreciated”.  Congratulations to all participants!

Loin

Réalisé par Alex Chocron.

École de Design, UQAM, 2016

Loin est un projet d'animation réalisé dans un cadre scolaire, suite à la création d'un fanzine lors d'un atelier de sérigraphie. Une histoire qui évoque l'amour, le manque et la perte. Un conte vieux comme le monde, de deux entités incapables de reconnecter leur tout à cause de la distance qui les séparent.


Loin (Far) is an animation project, following the creation of a fanzine in a screen printing workshop. A story that evokes love and loss. A tale as old as time, about two entities unable to reconnect their whole because of the distance separating them.
