The VII Tenerife International Film Music Festival, which will be held from July 5 to 14, will embrace among its most outstanding contents a monographic journey throughout the 35 years of excellence in the field of film music discographic edition of Varese Sarabande, a label where some of the most prominent cinematographic composers' careers have been forged.
One more year, the Festival presents a succulent musical agenda with highlights such as the concert FIMUCITÉ will dedicate to the 007 saga, and which will include a live performance by the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra of the recent Best Original Song Oscar award from the film Skyfall. The importance of James Bond in film history will inspire also some of the parallel activities programmed this year by the Festival.
Besides, Guimerá Theatre will open its doors for FIMUCITÉ 2013 to hold a new Big Band de Canarias performance, after last year's successful results. This time, they will pay tribute to one of the greatest figures of Hollywood Golden Age, Elmer Bernstein, composer of scores such as The Magnificent Seven, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Airplane!, and to whom the Festival pays tribute this year.
As part of the wide variety of parallel activities of the Festival, there will be a new formative workshop about film music composition, inaugurated last year thanks to the collaboration between FIMUCITÉ and the biggest private film music college in the world, the Berklee College of Music. With this workshop, professional musicians, students and general public, will enjoy again a unique workshop where accomplished international professionals will share their talents to explain the process of producing a soundtrack as well as of creating music for an audiovisual project.
New this year and aimed at professionals, the Tenerife International Film Music Festival will include the Cinematographic Market Euroforum, coordinated by Guillermo Ríos, and which will be held at Hotel Mencey in Santa Cruz.
