BMIM is all about making connections. That is, in fact, one of the main goals of BMIM’s existence.

At the start of June we kicked of the first digital Buma Music in Motion. Of course we would have loved to greet you in person, but we now have the opportunity connect on a weekly basis, which is exciting as well. Since June we connected producers, editors, directors, post producers, filmmakers, studios, advertising agencies and media producers to promising talent and all parties were enthusiastic and motivated to not let covid-19 get in their way.
We started our program in June with a session about PR for Screen Composers, a Q&A with Bobby Gumm (which led to an actual brief) and our matchmaking session: One on Ones, where some of you jumped from one side of the ocean to the other within minutes and without the jetlag. We feel humbled by the enthusiastic reactions and can’t help but feel proud to see how many of you got to connect with each other.
