London-based ThinkSync Films has launched its second competition bringing together independent film-makers and independent record labels and music publishers.

Film-makers will submit short films of the theme 'Twist', using one or more tracks from the music freely downloadable at the ThinkSync website. Films should not resemble music videos, and they will be judged on the most skilful and appropriate use of music within the film. Among the 35 tracks at the website are from labels including Ninja Tunes, Bug Music, Southern Fried Records and Digital Hardcore Recordings.

Connie Farr of Cacophony Music and Raindance veteran Oli Harbottle founded ThinkSync last year. Last year's competition drew more than 200 entries.
