ISFMF PROUDLY ANNOUNCES THE COLLABORATION WITH ECSA!
About the Camille Awards
The Camille Awards are a set of awards given to composers of exceptional pieces of film and audio-visual music by their peer composers. The Camille Awards honor composers of original music for audio-visual artworks in the following categories:
- Best orchestral score
- Best electro-acoustic score
- Best original music for a series
- A separate category will reward an outstanding music composition for a video-game.
The ceremony will take place October 20th 2018 in the frame of the International Sound & Film Music Festival (ISFMF) in Pula (Croatia). It is organized jointly by the festival’s organizers and the European Composer and Songwriter Alliance (ECSA).
Renamed in tribute to first composer of film music Camille Saint-Saëns, the Camille Awards (previously Grand Scores) were launched in 2014 at the initiative of composer and ECSA Vice-President Bernard Grimaldi as a celebration of European film music and its composers. They have been held every February in the context of the Berlinale but this year’s edition will take place in the frame of an exciting new partnership with the International Sound & Film Music Festival in Pula, Croatia.
PREVIOUS EDITIONS AS GRAND SCORES
ECSA is the official content lead of the Camille Film Music Awards. The awards are organized in partnership with Moët & Chandon and have been held in February every year since 2014 in the framework of the Berlinale. The role of the Alliance is to develop a fair and well thought-out selection procedure for the award ceremony, as well as to put together a jury in charge of selecting the winners.
The Grand Scores has become the leading event celebrating European Film Music over the last years.
