Awards celebrate the sound community
Founded in 1953, the Motion Picture Sound Editors is an organization dedicated to improving the recognition of its members by educating the public and the rest of the filmmaking community as to the artistic merit of sound editing. The efforts of MPSE talented and hard-working members can be heard every hour of the day all over the world. Now it is time prepare everything for yet another edition of the MPSE Annual Golden Reel Awards, which celebrate the sound community.
Originally presented in 1953, the MPSE Golden Reel Awards has been growing in scope and stature for nearly seven decades. Today, it honors the work of sound artists from around the world and across diverse forms of entertainment media. The 68th MPSE Golden Reel Awards were presented April 17, 2021 in a fully-virtual ceremony that included participants from six continents.
