A cross-pollination between image and music
Film Fest Gent and arts centre Vooruit go way back when it comes to the presentation of our yearly programme, in which we explore the fringes of cinema in performances, lectures, music and theatre.
As of 2017 we tightened our collaboration with centre Vooruit, by bringing you a programme dedicated to the cross-pollination of image and music.
This year's programme will be announced before the summer.

Between 10 and 21 October 2017, image and music were united under the roof of Vooruit. Film Fest Gent and Vooruit presented an extensive programme including a host of live soundtracks and works by various video artists. The programme came as the result of a close collaboration between Vooruit and Film Fest Gent.
STUFF. performed the festival’s opening act on 11 October. During ‘STUFF. plays Howard Shore’, the quintet presented a live interpretation of the music of composer Howard Shore, paired with the horror films of David Cronenberg. You could also hear their music in a video installation made especially for the occasion by Frederik Jassogne and Bart Moens.
Vooruit’s musicians in residence also came out to play: Mary Ocher (Wed 18.10) and Roman Hiele (Thu 19.10) each treated festival-goers to a unique film score. Hiele performed music to accompany an animation by artist Gabriela Gonzalez. The international collective Gaussian Curve put on an exclusive Belgian show (Thu 12.10), with video artist Heleen Blanken providing live visuals. Hamburg’s synthpop artist Felix Kubin presented the Belgian première of his Takt Der Arbeit (Thu 19.10). Goblin played their own music to accompany the cult horror classic 'Dawn of the Dead' by George Romero (Fri 20.10) and Heleen Van Haegenborgh & Frederik Leroux presented a soundtrack to a film ... that doesn’t exist (Sun 15.10).
This programme was made possible by Vooruit Arts Centre and Film Fest Gent in partnership with Stroom.tv, Gouvernement, Springstof and OFFoff.
