The Third Character

WSA Film Music Days, Ghent (BE)

Very proud to announce this open call together with WSA Film Music Days in Ghent. Interested in connecting with duos of producers and directors working on a filmproject? Let’s build your international network during this matchmaking.

The project gives composers the opportunity to meet duos of producers and directors who are working on a film project. It’s the perfect way for composers, directors and producers alike to build a network and to find common creative ground. Collaborations born out of these meetings have the opportunity to apply for financial support for the score through authors’ rights organisations Sabam, Sacem and Buma Music in Motion (BMIM) (only for member composers).

The Third Character project is a unique initiative developed by Festival International Music & Cinema Marseille (MCM) and Sacem, and is annually organized in Marseille in April during MCM and in October in Ghent as part of the WSA Film Music Days.
