Composer Talk

Film Fest Ghent invites emerging composers to talk about their oeuvre and their place within the industry as a composer, a producer or simply as a person.

Film Music Seminar

The Film Music Seminar is the ideal opportunity to gain insight into the methodology and artistry of a seasoned professional. The seminar is a collaboration between Film Fest Ghent and KASK and is aimed at (film)music or sound design students to better understand the creative bond between filmmaker, composer and/or sound designer.
