Wsa Film Music Composition Contest

Film Fest Gent – WSA Film Music Composition Contest

Film Fest Gent and live music go hand in hand. To celebrate this special relationship the festival organises the yearly World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony & Concert and the WSA Film Music Days, where industry professionals and passionate audiences unite to celebrate the best of film music.

Each year, Film Fest Gent also organises a WSA Film Music Composition Contest, where young composers under the age of 36 can compete for the coveted Sabam Award for Best Original Composition by a Young Composer.

This year, young screen composers are invited to write a score for a scene from The Witches, Nicolas Roeg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s acclaimed novel. The chosen excerpt shows the Grand High Witch pushing a baby in a stroller off a cliff and Luke ultimately saving it. The three final scores will be performed at the World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony & Concert (16 October 2024) by the Brussels Philharmonic and conducted by Maestro Dirk Brossé.

Deadline for submissions: 16 May 2024.
