The European Film Music Day is organised by ECSA (European Composer and Songwriter Alliance), FERA (Federation of European Film Directors) and SoundTrack_Cologne in collaboration with Directors’ Fortnight and FNAC.

The film music days is an opportunity for film and audiovisual composers to make their voice heard. The event features different panels addressing key issues for film composers and is an opportunity to present the extraordinary value of their craftsmanship.

The one-day event typically closes with an exclusive reception for guests, which is a good platform for them to meet and exchange business cards – often resulting in new collaboration and work.
