About Music and Copyright
As films submitted to the NVGFF are for public display including on the internet, we ask that you not use copyrighted music (or images) in your film without permission of the copyright holder. That means you should not use just any song from your music collection in your film. To learn more about copyright, see the website Copyright Kids.
Try these alternatives for adding music to your film:
- Write and record your own music. Need help? Garage Band (for windows, mac, and ipad) is a program that can make it easy!
- Use music in the public domain. This usually means the copyright has expired.
- Use royalty free music. Royalty free means the copyright holder makes the music available to filmmakers and others to use in their projects. Sometimes there is a fee, but a lot can be used at no cost. In either case, you do have to list the source in your credits.
