THE networking event for professionals in the film music industry

Each year Film Fest Gent organises the WSAwards Industry Day: The networking event for both young and established international film (music) professionals to learn, debate and to socialize.

In different masterclasses and panels during the entire day, guest speakers discuss what’s going on in the international film music industry, teach students about production or composition techniques and talk about the relation between film composer and director. During these sessions, there will be a Q&A and during the lunch, professionals will have the opportunity to meet and speak with each other about their ideas or vision on film music.
