Let's make a record!
Every year Film Fest Ghent records a compilation album with a selection of the best scores by one particular composer. For the WSA's 20th anniversary in 2020, we released a special compilation album World Soundtrack Awards: Tribute to the Film Composer.
Film Fest Ghent is eager to put film composers in the spotlight during the World Soundtrack Awards, but we also want to spread their music for film in other ways. We annually organise the production of a unique compilation album, usually with the work of one particular film composer. Over the years, we have newly recorded the music of composers such as Gabriel Yared, Angelo Badalamenti, Alan Silvestri, Craig Armstrong, Shigeru Umebayashi, Mychael Danna, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Terence Blanchard, Carter Burwell, Marco Beltrami and others.
The music is performed by Brussels Philharmonic and conducted by Dirk Brossé. The latest series of albums is recorded by Motormusic and licensed to Silva Screen Records.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the World Soundtrack Awards, Film Fest Ghent devoted its annual album to all thirteen winners of the World Soundtrack Film Composer of the Year Award over the past two decades. This special compilation features newly recorded pieces by Angelo Badalamenti, Nicholas Britell, Carter Burwell, Mychael Danna, Alexandre Desplat, Patrick Doyle, Michael Giacchino, Elliot Goldenthal, James Newton Howard, Alberto Iglesias, Jóhann Jóhannsson, John Williams and Gabriel Yared.

In 2019 the CD Marco Beltrami - Music for Film was released during the film festival. The album includes cues and unique suites from a selection of Marco Beltrami's best film scores, such as Scream, Snowpiercer, World War Z, Gods of Egypt and A Quiet Place. Buy your copy of the CD here.
In 2018 our guest of honor Carter Burwell's film scores were bundled onto a unique compilation for the first time. You can enjoy the film scores he has composed for Fargo, In Bruges, Twilight and Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri, to name but a few. The live recording also includes exclusive and unreleased tracks from The Spanish Prisoner and Olive Kitteridge. Available in our webshop here.
