This year the South African Film Score Orchestra are giving three local composers
a chance to have their original three-minute scores recorded and played live by
the South African Film Orchestra at this year’s Shnit International Short Film
Festival. The Cape Town leg of Shnit runs from 7 to 11 October in venues in and around the city.
Each year, Shnit Realtime gives three filmmakers the chance to produce short films
over the course of the Shnit festival weekend. Three winning scores will be selected
by a panel of composers, artists and filmmakers, and supplied to the Realtime
competition filmmakers as inspiration, resulting in three final shorts crafted around
each of the scores.
The films will premiere on the closing night of the festival, with the South African
Film Orchestra as live accompaniment as the films screen.
