IMRO | RTÉ Scoring For Film Program 2017 | Seeks Film Submissions

Following on from the success of previous collaborative film-scoring workshops, the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, in association with Filmbase, The Contemporary Music Centre (CMC) and Screen Training Ireland will bring together the very best emerging Irish filmmakers and composers to work on an exciting collaborative project.

The focus of the project is a one-day recording session in RTÉ studios in June 2017. This will involve the RTÉ Concert Orchestra performing and recording original scores for up to four short film submissions received from emerging Irish filmmakers.

Submitted film projects for the scheme should require original scored music totaling between three and five minutes. Ideally the film should have a maximum duration of 10 – 12 minutes and should be close to or have completed picture lock. Once selected, the filmmakers will work with a composer, who has been selected through the process, who will create a score for the film to be performed and recorded by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

This initiative will provide emerging filmmakers and composers with a valuable opportunity to enhance their skills with hands-on experience in a vital aspect of film post-production. It is also a rare opportunity to have a score composed for full orchestra.

Filmmakers are invited to submit a short film or film excerpt from a longer project (eg pilot) for which the selected composers will create up to 3 – 5 minutes max. of original score. All categories of film will be accepted e.g. live-action drama, animation, documentary, experimental, etc). Ideally, the film projects submitted should be close to completion on editing, but un-sound edited/mixed. The use of temp tracks or “mood music” where score is required is allowed but not required.

Closing date for submissions: Friday 17 March 2017

Our preference is to receive your submission electronically. Please send a link to your film submission to or alternatively by post to:
