The 26th edition of the Ourense Film Festival, to be held from September 24 to October 2, 2021, will award its special prize to the Galician composer Sergio Moure de Oteyza, for his important contribution to the world of cinema and for his long career as author of more than fifty compositions for feature films, short films, and television series, in addition to his work as a symphonic musician.
Sergio Moure de Oteyza expressed his gratitude for this award, saying that the prize “is a turning point in my career; I have been composing for film and television for 20 years, and that encourages me to keep going forward”. The composer believes that festivals like the OUFF “should serve as a window to give visibility to the world of cinema. They should serve as a showcase, now more than ever”.
On the occasion of this award, the festival will publish an autobiographical book by Moure de Oteyza himself in their Monographs series, which will be presented on the same dates. [UPDATE: Book released – 28/9/2021 – read more]
