Session on film soundtrack
in collaboration with SACEM
For the first time, Next Step will provide a session dedicated to film soundtracks organised in collaboration with the SACEM. The aim is to encourage participants to both better understand the work that goes into music composition for films and start thinking about the music for their feature film projects. five promising French composers have been selected through a national call to take part to this session.
These composers alongside the filmmakers taking part in Next Step will attend a masterclass given by the director Alice Winocour and her composer Gesaffelstein, who will share their experience of collaborating on the feature film Maryland, selected for Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival.
The five composers will then introduce themselves and talk about their work as musicians and composers to the ten filmmakers who take-part in Next Step.
