Aleksandra Rastovic Wins Dallas Chamber Symphony’s Second Annual Sight of Sound Film Competition

International film competition featured new visual works set to classical music with Symphony performing live-to-film. Silvia Lara wins Audience Choice Award at April 28th season finale.

Dallas, Texas, May 6, 2015 – The Dallas Chamber Symphony is pleased to announce that UCLA Student Aleksandra Rastovic has received the Best Picture Award at its Second Annual Sight of Sound International Film Competition.

Earlier in the year, the Dallas Chamber Symphony called on all types of filmmakers from around the world to create new, short, silent films for selections of classical music. For the DCS’s season finale on Tuesday, April 28, finalist films were screened as the Symphony performed the finalists’ works live-to-film. Rastovic’s film, “The Fatales,” was chosen by a jury panel to be the grand prize winner.

After the screenings, audience members were asked during intermission to text a vote for their favorite film. Silvia Lara’s film, “Impetus,” received that Audience Choice award.
