2001 and Beyond: A Symphonic Odyssey
Stanley Kubrick's groundbreaking masterpiece '2001: A Space Odyssey' is exactly fifty years old. Under the title '2001 and Beyond: A Symphonic Odyssey' Film Fest Gent is planning a concert on October 18th of music from films that take place in space.
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.
