Ile filamu kali inayohusika na masuala ya tasnia ya muziki wa Tanzania, iliyoongozwa na director chipukizi nchini, Jordan Riber, hatimae imenyakua tuzo ya fedha huko nchini Marekani.
Tuzo hizi zinazokwenda kwa jina la "The Park City Film Music Festival" ni tuzo mpya zinazojitegemea ambazo hutuza watengeneza filamu wa kujitegemea pamoja na wale wanaofadhiliwa na studio kubwa za utengenezaji wa filamu.
Tuzo hizi pia zinawatuza watengenezaji wa soundtrack za filamu, wanamuziki, waandishi wa muziki, na makundi mengine ya wanamuziki yanayostahili. Wenye tuzo wanasema wanafadhiliwa na Summit County RAP Tax and Transient Room Tax Funds.
'Mwamba Ngoma' ni filamu iliyotengenezwa kutazama historia ya muziki na wanamuziki wa Tanzania, muziki ulipotoka, ulipo, na unapokwenda. Tunaweza kusema kwa kujiamini kabisa kwamba hakuna filamu ya Kitanzania inayozungumzia tasnia ya muziki wa hapa nyumbani, ambayo imesheheni ufahamu wa kutosha kuhusu tasnia hiyo kama filamu ya Mwamba Ngoma.
Filamu hii si kwamba imefanikiwa kushinda tuzo hii ya "Fedha" bali pia mapema mwaka huu 'Mwamba Ngoma' ilifanikiwa kutajwa kushindania tuzo zingine za filamu za Afrika huko nchini Nigeria, tuzo ambazo zilikwenda kwa jina la African Movie Academy Award.
Huu unaweza kuwa mwanzo mzuri wa kuuweka muziki wa Afrika Mashariki katika ramani ya muziki wa dunia, na huenda isiwe muziki pekee bali pia tasnia ya filamu.
Hongera sana kwa waandaaji na watengenezaji wa filamu ya 'Mwamba Ngoma'.
Maelezo Zaidi Kuhusu Tuzo Hizo;
The 2010 Park City Film Music Festival is pleased to announce it is now accepting submissions from filmmakers and film composers.
The seventh annual PARK CITY FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL (pcFMF) will be held in Park City and Salt Lake City, Utah, May 17 - 23, 2010. This is the first film festival in the world singularly recognizing the contribution of composers and their music to film, and the first of such festivals in the Americas. Awards are given in the categories of Best Use of Music in Full-Length Feature Film, Best Use of Music in Documentary Film, and Best Use of Music in Short Film and, new this year, Best Performance/Experimental Music Film. The first major film festival to recognize film music as part of the awards lineup since 1985 is the FlandersInternational Film Festival - Ghent, which currently draws over 80,000 devotees.
Film music, whose broad appeal continues to gain prominence in the music marketplace, has stood for a long time recognized only at the very highest levels: the Academy awards, the Emmys, the Grammys, and a few others. The growing stature of film music is exemplified in the announcement in 2005 of the Pulitzer prizes qualifying film music for the first time after over 60 years.
The pcFMF burst on the scene with a landmark 33 films in 2004, 50 films in 2005, 102 films in 2006, 200 films in 2007, 210 films in 2008, and 200 films in 2009, and is the brainchild of Ms. Leslie Harlow who has been operating the Park City International Music Festival for over 25 years. A Juilliard graduate, she and her husband, festival director Russell Harlow, a member of the Utah Symphony, are both prominent classical artists.
Ms. Harlow is driven to propel the PARK CITY FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL to international prominence, and has received encouragement from the Utah Film Commission, original founder of the Utah/United States Film Festival (now called Sundance Film Festival). Leslie has already spoken with esteemed film composer, John Williams, who is very excited at the prospect of this new festival. As this festival grows in scope, we will be inviting John Williams and other prominent film composers to celebrate the art of film music through performance and master classes. For 2008, we are currently choosing the seminar that we will be offering. The 2005 Park City Film Music Festival seminar was hosted by composer Mark Northam of the Film Music Institute (LA).
The 2006 Park City Film Music Festival seminars were hosted by world-renowned composer, orchestrator, and arranger Conrad Pope (Pavilion of Women, Munich, Memoirs of a Geisha, Star Wars Episodes I,II, III), Emmy award-winning composer Kurt Bestor (2002 Winter Olympics), award-winning film composer Vincent Gillioz, award-winning film composer Jeffrey Gold, sound designer and sound editor Jim LeBrecht of Berkeley Sound Artists, and Music Supervisor and writer for Film Music Magazine, Michael Rogers. The 2007 Park City Film Music Festival seminars were hosted by world-renowned composer, orchestrator, and arranger Hummie Mann (Robin Hood: Men in Tights), award-winning film composer, film composer Dennis Dreith, film composer Vincent Gillioz, award-winning film composer Jeffrey Gold, film composer/guitarist Vince Lauria.
