BMVA, Europe's largest networking event for the video and music industry, has been held since 2013. The selection process is based on the quality, originality, and diversity of each work, regardless of language, genre, or recognition. The contest is highly recognized internationally as a competition in the music video industry. This year's nominees in each category again include a wide range of works from well-known international artists such as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pharrell Williams, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, DJ Snake, and Oliver Tree. The Silver Screening Selection is a project to select the best films from all entries regardless of category, and the selected films will be screened in June at an awards ceremony to be held at Gretchen-club, one of Berlin's main event venues.
Katsuyuki NAKANISHI is the first Japanese filmmaker to win the Best Music Video Award in the Music Video Competition at HRIFF 2023 for his film, and this BMVA 2023 selection is also a rare accomplishment.
