Film Fest Gent is looking for Flemish film projects for the 3rd Character initiative, which was developed by Music&Cinema Marseille en SACEM. For the Belgian side of this initiative, we're working closely with FIFF Namur and are organising these meetings yearly either in Ghent or in Namur. Thanks to this initiative, film projects can find a composer and receive support for the score from SABAM and SACEM. The deadline to send in your project and take part in 3rd Character is 30 August. The meetings will take place in Namur on Monday 3 October.
