Schnit Realtime Calls For SA Composers – Enter Now

New, emerging and fresh film composers, shnit International Shortfilmfestival’s Realtime Competition and the South African Film Orchestra invites you to enter your unproduced scores into the Realtime Composer Film Score Competition. Stand a chance to have your score selected as one of three to be played live at shnit’s Closing Night 2015.

The South African Film Orchestra is the only dedicated media scoring ensemble on the Continent. This year they are giving three fresh SA composers the chance to have their original three-minute scores recorded and played live by the South African Film Orchestra at this year’s shnit International Shortfilmfestival.

Each year, shnit Realtime gives three filmmakers the chance to produce short films over the course of the shnit festival weekend. Three winning scores will be selected by a panel of composers, artists and filmmakers, and supplied to the Realtime competition filmmakers as inspiration, resulting in three final shorts crafted around each of the scores.

The films will premiere on the Closing Night of the festival, with the South African Film Orchestra as live accompaniment as the films screen!
