Fans of Film Music 2018 – Event information

The event Fans of Film Music, organized by its founder and president Peter Hackman, is close to celebrating the 9th edition on Saturday, August 25th, 2018, consisting of a conference/meeting, where famous composers interact with fans of film music, to exchange opinions related to the world of soundtracks.


The event, which has been held annually at The Bridge Recording Studio in Glendale (Los Angeles), has unfortunately received bad news lately, as the studio will be closing its doors next September, and no more recordings or events will be held there, so it looks that the 9th edition of Fans of Film Music will be one of the last memories of the venue.

The full line-up of this edition includes 6 guest composers:
