25 scores, 25 films
The impact music can have on a film cannot be underestimated. Yet composers are often involved late in a film project, always making their music in function of the image. For this anniversary project, Film Fest Gent turns the tables. The festival first approached musicians to create a short composition, and then Film Fest Gent knocked on the filmmakers' doors. Again, a wide range of filmmakers were provided. The filmmakers were shown a few pieces of music and made their choice from them. Only when the choise had been made, the name of the composer was revealed.
Films to See
The short films will be shown before each feature film during the festival and can already be seen on Film Fest Gent's Youtube and Vimeo channels. From 10 to 21 October, the films can also be seen on the big screen in S.M.A.K., the Municipal Museum of Contemporary Art in Ghent.
