From the festival website... "The Park City Film Music Festival is a new independent film festival, presenting film music competition for both INDIE and studio-sponsored films, a performance showcase for composers with seminars for composers, musicians, songwriters and groups...The third annual PARK CITY FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL (pcFMF) will be held in Park City and Salt Lake City, Utah, January 19-29, 2006. This is the first film festival in the world singularly recognizing the contribution of composers and their music to film, and the first of such festivals in the Americas. Awards are given in the categories of Best Use of Music in Full-Length Feature Film, Best Use of Music in Documentary Film, and Best Use of Music in Short Film...Film music, whose broad appeal continues to gain prominence in the music marketplace, has stood for a long time recognized only at the very highest levels: the Academy awards, the Emmys, the Grammys, and a few others. The growing stature of film music is exemplified in the announcement earlier this year of the Pulitzer prizes qualifying film music for the first time in 61 years.
The pcFMF burst on the scene with a landmark 33 films in 2004, 50 films in 2005, and is the brainchild of Ms. Leslie Harlow who has been operating the Park City International Music Festival for over 21 years. A Juilliard graduate, she and her husband, festival director Russell Harlow, a member of the Utah Symphony, are both prominent classical artists.
Ms. Harlow is driven to propel the PARK CITY FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL to international prominence, and has received encouragement from the Utah Film Commission, original founder of the Utah/United States Film Festival (now called Sundance Film Festival). Leslie has already spoken with esteemed film composer, John Williams, who is very excited at the prospect of this new festival. As this festival grows in scope, we will be inviting John Williams and other prominent film composers to celebrate the art of film music through performance and master classes."
