SOCAN members based in British Columbia can apply now to perform live at the third annual Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF) AMP (Audio Music Production) SOUNDOFF program, where up to six selected artists from across the musical spectrum will perform a single song each, live, to a panel of key international music supervisors on the hunt for their next discovery. Each artist will have an opportunity to receive feedback, learn more about songwriting for film and television, and gain valuable insight from the panel about getting their music placed onscreen. Artists can apply here, until 5:00 p.m. PST on July 19, 2019.

Supported by Music BC, SOUNDOFF provides an intimate platform for BC’s most promising musicians to focus on song placement and synchronization licensing in feature films, television, documentaries, and filmed media, while connecting with senior music supervisors and producers from around the globe. Since the launch of SOUNDOFF in 2017, more than 20 artists have participated in the program, including Chin Injeti, Harrison Brome, Emily Rowed, The Long Wall, Sam Lynch, Luca Fogale, Loig Morin and FIONN. Artists connect with senior music supervisors and producers at this expansive yet intimate gathering.

SOUNDOFF is a part of VIFF AMP, sponsored by SOCAN, which brings together local and international music supervisors, screen composers, and post-production experts to engage in panels, workshops and networking events exploring the essential role that music plays in film and television. Over the two-day summit, world-class experts will weigh in on subjects such as diversity in the music marketplace, the art of music supervision, and how music rights management victories around the world are benefiting songwriters and composers. VIFF AMP 2019 will be held Oct. 4-5 at The Pyatt Hall in the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra School of Music, at 843 Seymour St.
