On the 27th of September Emmy Award-winning composer Kris Bowers (Green Book, When They See Us) will give a masterclass during the Netherlands Film Festival, presented by BMIM. On October 8th however, we’ve arranged an intimate, more in depth online workshop for a few happy composers. He will be talking in an intimate, wide-ranging q&a workshop where you can ask him questions about his work. Bowers creates genre-defying music that pays homage to his jazz roots with inflections of alternative and R&B influences. His debut album, Heroes+Misfits, opened at number one on the iTunes jazz chart in 2014. In 2015, he was selected to participate in the Sundance Film Composers Lab at Skywalker Sound and in 2018, Bowers scored Green Book, for which he was nominated for ‘Best Score’ at the 2019 Critic’s Choice Awards. In the same year Bowers received the prestigious ‘ROBIE Pioneer Award’ from the Jackie Robinson Foundation and he scored Monsters and Men, which premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and has been nominated for an Emmy. Bowers’ original music and lyrics are featured in Madden NFL 19: Longshot, as well as the forthcoming Madden 2020.
