Film Fest Gent honours French composer Philippe Sarde with Lifetime Achievement Award at 18th World Soundtrack Awards
Within the framework of the upcoming World Soundtrack Awards Gala, Film Fest Gent will honour Philippe Sarde's impressive career with a Lifetime Achievement Award followed by a tribute to Sarde's film music.
Film Music & Sound Promotional Events
During the festival, several music events are organised to highlight the relation between film and music. The WSAwards: Gala & Concert show that a movie can't go without a composer, the concert traditionally demonstrates the best results of those collaborations (according to a certain theme) and the Film Music Seminar and Industry Day deal with the technical side of it in the presence of the most important musical guests that are also invited to the concerts. These events will take place in either Capitole or Vooruit Arts Centre, the latter being our partner for a series of concerts where bands and musicians do their thing with a selected film fragment.
