Session on film soundtrack
in collaboration with SACEM

For the third year, 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. six 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 composer Amine Bouhafa who composed the music of Timbuktu by Abderrahmane Sissako (Cannes Film Festival 2014) and recently Beauty and the Dogs by Kaouther Ben Hania (Un Certain Regard 2017).

The six composers will then introduce themselves and talk about their work as musicians and composers to the nine filmmakers who take-part in Next Step.
