Film Music Concert: Great Greek Composers
Live music is a crucial part of Film Fest Ghent's identity. That is why the festival organises concerts in which film music is allowed to be the protagonist. There's an annual thematic concert revolving around the work of one composer, country or subject.
VIDEODROOM is the annual musical date between Kunstencentrum Voo?uit and Film Fest Ghent. It is a surprising cross-pollination between film and music that gives film classics a make-over. Featuring live music and performances, this bold initiative presents the film canon in a new, experimental light, offering a fresh perspective on the classics and in the process creating an unforgettable experience.
