Welcome to the Sac Music Seen, an original program for the Sacramento Film and Music Festival that pairs local filmmakers and musicians to make music videos. Bands submit their music and filmmakers provide the images, and in the past eight years the festival has showcased nearly 180 audiovisual collaborations at the Crest.

All completed projects will be screened at the historic Crest Theatre as part of the Summer event.

The Process:

1. Bands and musicians submit their original music tracks.
2. The Sacramento Film and Music Festival will hold a listening party where all music submissions are sampled for local filmmakers.
3. Filmmakers rate music based on their interest in working with the music artist.
4. The Sacramento Film and Music Festival pairs musical acts with filmmakers based on review forms (not all music submissions will be selected).
5. Video production begins.

Musicians can have TWO chances for valuable exposure from the Sac Film & Music Festival experience!

Submitted music tracks will be provided to participating filmmakers, who will select their favorites and create a video using them as inspiration. If your music is not selected for this program, it will be provided to participants of the festival's 10x10 Film Challenge for possible scoring purposes. The 10x10 Film Challenge is a competition where filmmakers are given 10 days to complete a 10-minute film.
