Within the framework of the upcoming World Soundtrack Awards, Film Fest Gent will host the very first concert dedicated to Carter Burwell's film work. Brussels Philharmonic, conducted by Dirk Brossé, will perform his original scores accompanied by film clips on the big screen.

Film Fest Gent welcomes Carter Burwell as central guest at the 18th World Soundtrack Awards. Never before has music of the globally acclaimed composer, especially known through his collaboration with the Coen Brothers, been performed live.

The American composer is considered one of the most brilliant film composers of his generation, known for his compelling scores including 'Being John Malkovich', 'In Bruges', 'Where The Wild Things Are', 'Twilight' and his unique collaborations with some of the world's most respected filmmakers such as the Coen Brothers ('Fargo', 'True Grit', 'Miller's Crossing', 'No Country for Old Men') and Todd Haynes ('Carol', 'Wonderstruck', 'Mildred Pierce', 'Velvet Goldmine'). Earlier this year, the acclaimed American composer received an Academy Award Nomination and Golden Globe nomination for Martin McDonagh's darkly comedic drama 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'.

Film Fest Gent will honour Philippe Sarde's impressive career with a Lifetime Achievement Award followed by a tribute to Sarde's film music. The French composer is known for an immense variety and richness in his scores, ranging from impressive symphonic work to pure jazz. Sarde has worked with several world-famous directors such as Claude Sautet, Bertrand Tavernier, Yves Boisset, André Téchiné, Roman Polanski, Jean-Jacques Annaud, Marco Ferreri, Jacques Doillon and even Robert Bresson.

The World Soundtrack Awards will also feature music by Nicholas Britell, Academy Award-nominated composer, pianist and producer. Last year during the World Soundtrack Awards, the American composer won the 'Discovery of the Year' award for Barry Jenkins' Oscar-winning film 'Moonlight'.
