The mission of the MMVA Munich Music Video Awards is to expand the boundaries of traditional filmmaking by creating a "visual symphony" in which music will play a major role. An international demonstration of music video is to celebrate and educate those who combine two powerful platforms of music and film.

Merging picture with music creates long awaited “integral cinematography” providing additional dimension and power to visual messages. At the same time it gives the second life to music itself, allowing us to visualize images inspired by melodies, often lost in our subconscious.

As one of the youngest genres in the film industry, it is a video clip, an audiovisual work whose sound component is the whole or substantially a record of the artistic performance of a musical work.

    The Munich Music Video Film Festival is a Five Star festival that all serious movie makers should enter. We will, most surely, be submitting again.

    We were honored for our Musical Feature Film to be named a Finalist. This recognition by the Munich Music Video Award is most meaningful for all involved in this project. This film was produced during the height of the Covid outbreak to help raise funds for nonprofits. All the talents were taped individually at their homes on greenscreen and their interactions, and backgrounds all had to be completed digitally in post.
