BMIM Connects: Netherlands Film Festival

We are delighted to announce that, once again, we’re part of The Netherlands Film Festival (NFF) this year; with a talk by the legendary Jan Harlan and a Script & Score session.

Lecture Jan Harlan: Music as a Scripting Tool

He was Stanley Kubrick’s regular producer since Barry Lyndon and worked with Steven Spielberg, to name just two examples. In this inspiring talk, Harlan combines his narrative skills with his love of (film) music. Many people still consider music just one part of the post-production, but Harlan demonstrates how a soundtrack can determine the structure of an entire movie.

Script & Score

NFF and BMIM are committed to making ever more connections between filmmakers and the music sector. For the second year, we are organising Script & Score, this year young filmmakers and composers get acquainted with each other’s work. Composers write music on the basis of screenplays in development and present themselves, filmmakers can be inspired, and we hope that this might lead to possible collaborations. For composers and producers: please sign up via before September 8th and together with NFF we will select eight composers.
