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 city of Munich does not need recommendations It is one of the largest places in the world where you can also listen to all kinds of music Its diverse ethnic and cultural community has contributed to the establishment and maintenance of several musical genres.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation the ceremony event date is from 31st March 2021 to 29th October 2021.
We do apologize in advance.

The awards ceremony with live screening will take place on 29th October 2021 at Neues-Maxim Kino.
