Dear members of the Motion Picture Sound Editors :

It is with great pleasure that we announce the opening of submissions for the 65th annual Golden Reel Awards. Our board continues to recognize the importance of change within the Motion Picture Sound Editors to reflect the current marketplace we work within. This being said  our Vice President Bernard Weiser and a sub-committee from our board of directors have spent the past year reviewing award categories and making adjustments to properly reflect all areas of entertainment and current formats. 


We have had an amazing year and we look forward in celebrating the creativity and artistic talents that have been shared on screens around the world. From Television, features, gaming, VR and all special venue formats, our organization recognizes the importance the sound community plays in the field of entertainment. We are a collaborative organization of sound artist residing throughout the world that share the same goals and values with the art of storytelling and entertainment being the glue that keeps us together. I look forward to seeing everybody the night of February 18th as we celebrate the art and craft of Sound.
