Film Fest Ghent has been focusing the spotlight on film music for decades. That makes it, according to Variety and The Wall Street Journal, one of the unmissable film festivals on the calendar. Every year, both renowned and new talent travel to Ghent to attend the music events, from the film music/industry days to the World Soundtrack Awards Concert. To top it all off, Film Fest Ghent releases its own new album every year.

Film Fest Ghent's music projects include the two film music concerts and various industry-related events during the annual film festival, and also other projects organised or supported by the film festival throughout the year.
