GARDEN STATE FILM FESTIVAL ISSUES CALL FOR ENTRIES FOR INDEPENDENT FILMS AND MOVIE MUSIC CATEGORIES FOR 2011 EVENT MARCH 31-April 3rd

ASBURY PARK, NJ (September 25, 2011) A worldwide “Call for Entries” has been issued to independent filmmakers by The Garden State Film Festival.
The deadline for submissions is December 1, 2010.  Filmmakers will find submission instructions on the festival’s web site at www.gsff.org.

The Garden State Film Festival, celebrating its ninth year, is New Jersey’s largest and most respected film festival, having attracted records
crowds of over 30,000 last year.  The 2011 Festival returns to the Paramount Theater On-the-Boardwalk in Asbury Park, New Jersey, March 31-April 3rd and
will feature film competition for independent filmmakers, open talent casting call, panel discussions, children’s workshops, and opening and
closing ceremonies. A panel of professional judges will select winning entries in a number of categories, including best Feature Length, Short ,
Documentary(short and feature length), Animation (short and feature length), Music Video, PSA, Commercial and Trailers.

The Garden State Film Festival (GSFF) was the first festival to create a category to recognize the musical compositions and the role music
plays in the cinematic arts.   To date, it remains the only independent film festival to recognize composers, artists and producers of scores,
soundtracks and theme songs judged solely on their own merit. Producers may submit their works, regardless of whether the film has been submitted or
accepted.
“We created the Movie Music category in recognition of the role movie music plays in the cinematic arts. NJ has a rich musical history and represents a
crossroads of the film and music industries,” making the largest and most respected film festival in NJ the most appropriate forum for the people
behind the music.” states Executive Director Diane Raver.
The GSFF invites all music makers who have written and produced tracks for independent films to be recognized for the part they play in the production
of fine films. Filmmakers are invited to submit (on CD format) any movie music from an independent film in any category that will be judged by music
industry professionals in the new category, dubbed the GSFF Movie Music Track Competition. The winners of the competition will be recognized at The
GSFF Black Tie Awards Dinner held on April 3rd, 2011 at The English Manor in Asbury Park, NJ. Information about the Movie Music Track Competition is also
on the web site at www.gsff.org
