WSA Talks & Masterclasses

Composing for screen is an often overlooked art, and therefore we strongly believe in networking events for both young and established international film (music) professionals to gain insight into the currents of the industry. The WSA Talks & Masterclasses are the ideal opportunity to be part of inspiring discussions and to meet colleagues in the field. For fans and film music enthusiasts, it's a chance to meet their favourite composers and to learn more about the craft of composing.

Check the already announced programme of the 2024 WSA Film Music Days. Tickets for the concerts are already on sale.

Composer's Talks

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

The WSA Talks & Masterclasses offer a variety of panel discussions and masterclasses that are open to professionals and the general public. Each year, a range of topics are addressed. From how to deal with authors' rights and composing for games, to an insight into a successful creative partnership, these talks are a chance for fans to get to know more about the process and for filmmakers, composers and other industry professionals to keep up with the fast-changing craft of composing for screen.
