ISFMF 2018 festival - First wave of guests


As you can see, the list includes very important names from the world of film music, as well as relevant people from the industry, and from organizations as important as ECSA – European Composer and Songwriter Alliance. It’s quite clear that Pula in Croatia, will be a main hub for film music in Europe that weekend, with two great events that will set the pace of the festival:

  • On the one hand we have the celebration of the Camille Awards, former Grand Scores Awards granted by ECSA, which will be presented on Saturday, October 20th, at a gala ceremony within the festival (read news).


  • On the other we have the traditional Crystal Pine Awards, annually awarded by the festival, which will be held on Sunday, October 21st, with a voting round in process by the members of the ISFMF Academy (read news), where SoundTrackFest is also included.
