Industry Packages

Every year Film Fest Ghent offers film music industry professionals the opportunity to participate in the music programme as a VIP. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic it is still unclear in which formula networking drinks and dinners will take place. To give professionals the opportunity to still participate as a VIP, we offer customized packages. Please contact our guest officer Sophie Joos at sophie@filmfestival.be.

(Please note that places are limited and that Film Fest Ghent reserves the right to decline applications.)

The 20th anniversary edition of the World Soundtrack Awards will be celebrated in a special way. Adapted to current circumstances, this year's WSA will be an online edition, livestreamed from Kinepolis Ghent, where the ceremony itself will take place in COVID-19-proof conditions.
