Film Fest Gent: World Soundtrack Awards 2021 with special guest Max Richter
Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Dirk Brossé - Opera Gent
Program Info: After a year in which the World Soundtrack Awards celebrated its twentieth anniversary with a livestream awards ceremony, the Film Fest Ghent team and the WSAcademy aim to put screen composers in the spotlight at a festive physical event. For the first time ever, the WSA Ceremony & Concert will take place in the impressive surroundings of the Opera of Ghent. The WSA intends to safely bring back together the film music community, from industry professionals to fans from all over the world.
As of tradition, the World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony & Concert will be the closing event of Film Fest Ghent. From 12 to 23 October 2021, the city of Ghent will form the scenery for the 48th edition of Film Fest Ghent as well as the WSA Industry Days (20 – 23 October). WSA2021 also welcomes back the annual thematic concert, which is planned for Friday 22 October 2021. Maestro Dirk Brossé will be conducting the Brussels Philharmonic, performing at both the thematic concert and the World Soundtrack Awards.
Composer Max Richter is guest of honour at 21st World Soundtrack Awards
On the occasion of the 21st edition of the WSA, Film Fest Ghent is honoured to announce Greek composer Eleni Karaindrou as a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. She will be one of the central guests at the WSA Ceremony & Concert and will accompany the Brussels Philharmonic on piano.
Held on 23 October 2021, the 21st edition of the World Soundtrack Awards will welcome the influential and internationally acclaimed composer Max Richter as its guest of honour. With scores for Mary Queen of Scots, HBO's The Leftovers, Waltz with Bashir, BBC's Taboo, the hit series My Brilliant Friend and almost a dozen solo albums (of which Sleep is an absolute landmark in modern classical music), Richter is one of the most innovative composers of our time.
