5th Annual LA Live Score Film Festival

We’re proud to be a returning sponsor of the LA Live Score Film Festival! Selected film composers are paired with a winning filmmaker to create an original score for the festival. The film is screened with the score performed live by the renowned performance and recording ensemble, Helix Collective. The screening includes an interview with the filmmakers and composers and Awards for Best Picture and Best Musical Score are presented at the close of the festival.

Now in it’s fifth season, LALSFF’s goal is to highlight the role of collaboration between composers and filmmakers. Acting like a talent agent, the festival brings experts in the two disciplines together. At the screenings, filmmakers and composers hear and see the work of new colleagues, meet new collaborators, and establish working relationships with each other.

The event occurred July 21st at Barnsdall Park in Los Angeles. Members of the Academy of Scoring Arts board served as judges for the composer selection.

The winning composers were:

Drum & Lace

George Oldziey

Marco Valerio Antonini

Erik Desiderio

Nathalie Bonin

Shaun Chasin

Steph Kowal

 Joy Ngiaw

Jonathan Keith

Peter Lam
