During the 7th edition of the World Soundtrack Awards, the Flemish Radio Orchestra will give a live performance of music by Mychael Danna (Little Miss Sunshine, Capote, Exotica, Monsoon Wedding), Harry Gregson-Williams (Antz, Shrek, Chicken Run, Veronica Guerin) and the Greek composer Evanthia Reboutsika (My Father & My Son), who won the WSA Discovery of the Year award last year. The orchestra will be conducted by Dirk Brossé. All composers will, of course, be present in Ghent.
In accordance with tradition, a Belgian is always on stage during the presentation of the World Soundtrack Awards. This year, jazz musician Jef Neve, who caused a stir with his first film score for Felix van Groeningen's Dagen zonder lief, will bear the honour. There will also be a forum for new Belgian music talent with the annual composition competition for young composers, where candidates were asked to compose music for a montage from the film Belgium, The Movie by Wim Robberechts. The Flemish Radio Orchestra will perform the winning score live to an international audience.
