"The impact of music on film" is the overall theme. More than 200 films will be shown at Kinepolis Ghent, Capitole, Sphinx, Studio Skoop and Arts Centre Vooruit.
With its focus on both film and music, the Flanders International Film Festival - Ghent occupies its own unique place in the international festival landscape. For over two decades now, we have been holding our competition on "the impact of music on film", and every year sees increasing popularity of the film music concerts and great anticipation as to the winner of the World Soundtrack Awards (WSA). Our pioneering role has not gone unrewarded. Not only has Ghent become a meeting place for established and up-and-coming film music talent, but increasing numbers of other festivals are also featuring music. Think of Berlin, Cannes and Karlovy Vary to name but three. Even the European Film Academy has been awarding a prize for the best European film music composer since 2004.
