I would like to use a song from an Independent music artist for my short film that will be in a non-profit film festival. I'm not getting a response from the artist. Will I be able to use it without their permission? - thanks in advance!
It depends. In most countries, you can use music for non-commercial purposes provided that you fully credit the artist. However, you should definitely check the rules around the festival you're entering too, as some of them require full copyright clearance/permissions if any part of the work is not your own. Hope that helps!
