WSA Industry Days
During the WSA Industry Days, students, young professionals and established names in the industry have the opportunity to debate, network, discover and be discovered. Through a mixture of seminars, composer talks, panel discussions and masterclasses, they get a glimpse behind the scenes while scrutinizing the current state of affairs in the film music industry.

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.
Panel Talks & Masterclasses
Our annual WSA industry programme consists of several panels and masterclasses, bringing together the film music community for interesting conversations and to discuss hot topics related to composing for screen.
Meet & Greet
Each year Film Fest Gent organises a short press conference and a Meet and Greet with the invited guests of honour and nominated WSA composers. This is your chance to meet your favourite film composers!
