The first edition of 2012 is dedicated to Music and Documentary Cinema, in cooperation with SAVAN (Foundation Audiovisual Antropology Netherlands).
According to documentalist Frank Scheffer music is the richest form of art. In film however music often fulfills a secundary, supporting part. This will be different, when music is the main issue of the film. How do you, being a documentary-maker, picture music? What is required for a good music-documentary? Does a music-documentary differ from an ‘ordinary’ documentary? And what do composers, musicians and programmers think of these films?
On the basis of film- and musicfragments will be discussed with programmers, musicians and film-makers.
