Flanders International Film Festival
4-Mar-2002 - Taking place from 8-19 October 2002, the 29th Flanders International Film Festival – Ghent will pay tribute to what is probably the greatest director-composer collaboration in the history of filmmaking : the creative partnership between French filmer François Truffaut and composer Georges Delerue.
The collaboration between Truffaut and Delerue will form the subject of a film retrospective that will be presented during the festival. On 19 October, the World Soundtrack Awards ceremony will be followed by a musical tribute to Delerue on the event of the 10th anniversary of his death (March 1992).

The days before, film music composers and executives will gather in Ghent for the first World Soundtrack Academy Summit. After exactly 75 years of mechanical sound in film (The Jazz Singer received its world première screening in October 1927), they will discuss the current state of film music and look at the future of the business.

This year’s Flanders International Film Festival – Ghent will again host a film competition with the Impact of Music on Film as its theme.
Already confirmed for the international jury are British composer George Fenton (The Navigators, Anna And The King, You’ve Got Mail, Dangerous Liaisons), veteran Belgian actress Chris Lomme (Blinker), Dutch author and actor Adriaan van Dis (The Other Life, Trouble In Paradise), and former Salzburger Festspiele manager and artistic director Gerard Mortier who, after the planning and direction of the Ruhr Triennale 2002-04 Germany’s North Rhine-Westphalia state, will assume the directorship of the Opéra de Paris starting from its 2004/5 season.
