Save the Date | 21 October 2023 | WSA Ceremony

Remember 22 October 2022? What an amazing night for film music that was! Jonny Greenwood, Nicholas Britell & Eiko Ishibashi may have grabbed the top prizes, but it's fair to say all of us won that day by being together again to celebrate the art of composing for screen. And we are very much looking forward to making the WSA2023 even greater! The event will take place on 21 October 2023. Tickets for the 2023 World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony & Concert are now for sale via our website and as an Academy member you are able to purchase VIP packages including VIP tickets, you can pre-register by sending a mail to info@worldsoundtrackawards.com.

Call for film projects in search of a composer

During the upcoming edition of the WSA Film Music Days, Film Fest Gent will organise the Belgian version of the Third Character initiative. This initiative is organised yearly in collaboration with MCM and FIFF Namur. Directors and producers, whose film project must have received financial support, can submit the scenario or a specific scene of a film project that has yet to begin filming and for which a composer has not yet been chosen. This scenario may be for a short or feature film, for fiction or documentary. Those selected will be matched to a suitable composer. During the Film Music Days composers will pitch their demos and approach.
