FIMU — Film Music Symposium Vienna 2019

The »Inter­na­tion­al Film Music Sym­po­sium Vien­na« will take place again on Octo­ber 16th, 2019 as a side event of »Hol­ly­wood in Vien­na« at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Music and Per­form­ing Arts Vienna.

On the occa­sion of the pre­sen­ta­tion of the »Max Stein­er Film Music Achieve­ment Award« to Oscar win­ning com­pos­er Gabriel Yared, we wel­come one of the most extra­or­di­nary com­posers of our time.

GABRIEL YARED has com­posed music for more than 100 movies. His great­est suc­cess­es include his Oscar-win­ning score for THE ENGLISH PATIENT, French clas­sics such as BETTY BLUE and L’AMANT as well as Hol­ly­wood block­busters such as the Nicholas Cage film CITY OF ANGELS, THE TALENTED MR. RIPLEY with Matt Damon as well as COLD MOUNTAIN with Jude Law and Nicole Kidman.

Gabriel Yared him­self will give a detailed insight into his work with­in a Mas­ter­class for com­posers and musi­cians on Octo­ber 15th.

Fur­ther­more, we will be address­ing edu­ca­tion­al pos­si­bil­i­ties in film music and the ques­tion of all ques­tions: ”How to make mon­ey as a film com­pos­er?”. Addi­tion­al­ly, we will focus on com­pos­ing music for TV doc­u­men­taries such as Blue Plan­et, Plan­et Earth, Uni­ver­sum and musi­cal comedies.
