Broadcast Music, Inc and Sundance Film Festival are presenting the 17th annual Composer/Director Roundtable during the 2015 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
This year’s Roundtable is entitled “Music & Film: The Creative Process,” and acts as an informative conversation and explorations of the role of music in film. Moderated by BMI Vice President of Film/TV Relations Doreen Ringer-Ross, the conversation will focus on the relationship between composer and director and will include panelists discussing creating a successful score, effective composer/director relationships and other relevant topics.
“We are proud to be so closely aligned with the Sundance Institute Film Music Program throughout the year, and we are committed to shining a light on our composers at the Sundance Film Festival because they provide an essential and deeply emotional element of filmmaking that is so subliminal that it often goes unnoticed and uncelebrated,” said Ringer-Ross in BMI’s announcement.
The Roundtable will be held at the Filmmaker Lodge from 4 pm to 6 pm on Tuesday, January 27th. One day later, January 28th, at 8 pm, BMI’s Snowball Showcase will take place at Sundance House Presented by HP.
Snowball will feature a diverse line up of talented BMI singer-songwriters including Christina Perri. Surprise artists will also be announced.
Both events demonstrate BMI’s focus on nurturing and sustaining relationships with emerging composers, as well as celebrating and promoting the value of music in film.
