Since establishing the World Soundtrack Academy, Film Fest Ghent has presented the prestigious annual World Soundtrack Awards for film music. The winners are announced during the World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony and Concert. At the concert, Brussels Philharmonic, conducted by Maestro Dirk Brossé, music director of Film Fest Ghent, performs a selection of music by the guests of honour and the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award, accompanied by film clips on big screens.

After a year in which the World Soundtrack Awards celebrated its twentieth anniversary with a livestream awards ceremony, the Film Fest Ghent team and the WSAcademy aim to put screen composers in the spotlight at a festive physical event. For the first time ever, the WSA Ceremony & Concert will take place in the impressive surroundings of the Opera of Ghent. The WSA intends to safely bring back together the film music community, from industry professionals to fans from all over the world.
As of tradition, the World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony & Concert will be the closing event of Film Fest Ghent. From 12 to 23 October 2021, the city of Ghent will form the scenery for the 48th edition of Film Fest Ghent as well as the WSA Industry Days (20 – 23 October). WSA2021 also welcomes back the annual thematic concert, which is planned for Friday 22 October 2021. Maestro Dirk Brossé will be conducting the Brussels Philharmonic, performing at both the thematic concert and the World Soundtrack Awards.

Lifetime Achievement Eleni Karaindrou will be present and Guest of Honour Max Richter. Music of both guests will be performed as well as last years' Discovery winner Bryce Dessner.
