Competition for Soundtrack for 1st Estonian Narrative Film Announced ({{commentsTotal}})

The Estonian Film Archives announced a competition to create a soundtrack for the first Estonian narrative film Karujaht Pärnumaal (Bear Hunting in Pärnu County).  

The film, directed by photographer and film-maker Johannes Pääsuke, premiered 100 years ago and is nearly 12 minutes long. To celebrate the film’s centenary, the Film Archives call on contributions for a soundtrack to the film, originally a silent movie, to bring it closer to today’s audiences with a modern soundtrack, reported today.

The competition welcomes all kinds of soundtracks, be it music, dialogue or narration.

The winner will be selected by a three-member jury that includes film critic Tristan Priimägi, composer Märt-Mattis Lill and director of the Estonian Film Archives and film researcher Eva Näripea. The award is 800 euros and special prizes will also be handed out.

The deadline for submissions is September 1 on a CD or DVD to the National Archives of Estonia in Tallinn at Maneeži Street 2.
