Awards from the 2004 Park City Film Music Festival

 

Competition for Best Impact of Music in Independent Film in a Feature Film

The Jury, Audience and Director of the Film Music Festival were thrilled with the quality of the submissions for this first year of the Park City Film Music Festival "Best Impact of Music in Independent Film Competition. Every film chosen for screening at the Film Music Festival was selected based on the effectiveness, the quality, the innovation, expression and creativity of the music. In each film selected for screening, the music is an integral part of the film itself and essential to the film's character and expression. There were many films submitted that were excellent films that were not chosen for screening only because the musical impact was not as strong or significant as in the following films. The Festival would like to thank each group that submitted their films for the competition.

There is no specific order to the awards. Here at the Park City Film Music Festival we are proud to have been able to present these films for the public to experience and enjoy. Gold Medals are awarded for All-Round Excellence and are considered top prizes.
