ECSA is, in collaboration with FERA (Federation of European Film Directors), FSE (Federation of Screenwriters in Europe) and the Directors’ Fortnight organising the European Film Music Day (EFDM) which will take place on 17 May 2016 in the framework of the Cannes Film Festival.
This year’s edition will be held under a Nordic focus in order to raise visibility of the Nordic film music and its creators. Confirmed partners are FTT (Icelandic Society of Authors & Composers) and SKAP (Swedish Society of Songwriters, Composers and Authors).
Designed as a day-long event, the EFMD programme will include roundtables, workshops and panel discussions on the creative collaboration between film music composers, film directors and screen writers as well as the European legislative dimension regarding the modernisation of the EU copyright rules (fair contracts, transparency), and new business models. The day will close with an evening reception at la Plage Quinzaine – the Directors’ Fortnight’s private beach. This event will again offer an exceptional opportunity for the invited composers to network with film directors, film producers, and other key representatives of the audio-visual industry.
More information on the programme to follow shortly.
