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.
