As it is usual, to the already announced vast concert program (read more), an intense masterclass/panel/meeting offer has been added with the 7th edition of the FMF Audiovisual Forum, holding more than 15 events.

In the masterclasses and panels, you can find people from the industry side of film music world, such as Ray Costa, Robert Townson, Michael Todd, Nikola Bojcev, Pedro Mérida, Robert Piaskowski or George Christopoulos among many others.
Surprisingly, composer Don Davis is not featured on any panel or even in a special Meet & Greet, and as we have recently known, Bruno Coulais won’t be able to finally attend the festival due to last minute obligations (watch video).
