In the audiovisual installation 60 years of Danish Film Music the festival goers will be able to meet some of the most outstanding historic film scores from Danish films shown at Nordische Filmtage Lübeck over the last 60 years. While listening to the music you are offered a short glimpse of the story behind the various scores.
The installation is a part of a larger theme of Danish film and media composition at the festival, led by BFM, and the project is also a part of the Cultural Friendship 2020 Denmark-Germany, as well as the Celebration of the Reunification 2020.
60 Years of Danish Film Music is created as a collaboration between Danish composer Jesper Siberg, the founder of the newly established Danish Film Music Archives, Jesper Hansen and the Industry Club for Film and Media Composers (BFM).
The installation is placed at the movie theater Kolosseum in Lübeck. It consists of a video screen and a so-called “sound shower”.
Nordischer Filmtage Lübeck
Nordischer Filmtage Lübeck is Europe’s only film festival that focuses exclusively on exploring the Nordic and Northeast-European film industry. In these years Danish film and media composers have international success with compositions for movies, television, etc. One can say that they are riding the popularity wave that Danish TV shows and films have achieved internationally – the so-called ‘Nordic Noir’.
The 60th edition of the international film festival Nordischer Filmtage Lübeck is going on from 31 October – 4 November 2018 in the Northern-German Hansestadt.
In a partnership with the Industry Club for Film and Media Composers (BFM) and Nordischer Filmtage Lübeck, Danish Cultural Institute in Brussels supports the audiovisual installation “60 years of Danish Film Music”.
