This 2018 the first edition of the Camille Awards – European Film Composer Awards will be celebrated, which are a set of awards given to composers of exceptional pieces of film and audio-visual music by their peer composers.
Organized jointly by the ECSA – European Composer and Songwriter Alliance and the International Sound & Film Music Festival – ISFMF, these awards come from the previously named Grand Scores Awards, launched in 2014, which this year have been renamed to Camille Awards, in a tribute to who is considered the first composer of film music: Camille Saint-Saëns (French composer, organist, conductor and pianist – read more).
These awards have been held every February in the context of the Berlinale, but in 2018, they will take place in the frame of an exciting new partnership with the International Sound & Film Music Festival – IFSMF in Pula (Croatia), to be held October 19-21, 2018.
Composers of music for the audio-visual sector are recognized in three categories: Best orchestral score, Best electro-acoustic score and Best original music for a series.
In the first phase, fourteen member-organizations representing composers of music for the audiovisual sector in twelve European countries, submit outstanding works from their respective region. Delegates from these organizations then proceed to a first round of vote to reduce the selection to three per category.
These are the nominees for the first edition of the Camille Awards:
The winners will be announced on the gala night of the 20th of October, during the International Sound & Film Music Festival – IFSMF in Pula (Croatia).
The Camille Awards 2018 are co-funded by the Creative Europe program of the European Commission and sponsored by Spanish Juan Gil Bodegas Familiares – Gil Family States.
