A word from our partners

At the Festival de Cannes, music has a place of honour!

Because we listen to a film as much as we watch it, music is essential to the creative process. It significantly contributes to the identity of a work, to the narration of the story; it intensifies emotions, and sets up rhythm and atmosphere. Alongside the director and the screenwriter, the composer is the third author of any cinematographic work. 

 Sacem has been committed for 170 years to representing creators in the music industry as well as audiovisual and cinema artists: composers of film scores, author-directors, dubbing and subtitling authors. Our authors' society is committed to supporting and promoting the creation of original music, by guiding the development of artistic careers and creative projects, and by encouraging the emergence and professional integration of young talent. 

Sacem is a partner of the world’s leading cinema festivals, and proud to pay tribute to the composers of film music. We are providing the opportunity to meet with composers to discuss their work, careers and collaboration with film directors.
