For the second year running, in partnership with the SACEM, The International Pavilion of film Music will appear at the Festival of Cannes 2006.
From now on, officially recognised; the UCMF (Union of Film Music Composers) wishes to provide a welcoming meeting place for composers worldwide to get together at Cannes. It is a professional and convivial space with information and services, conducive to reflection and exchanges.
The UCMF will also welcome the first European federation of film music composers. (FFACE- The Federation of Film and Audiovisual Composers of Europe), recently created at the MIDEM 2006. FFACE will hold its first General Assembly during the festival.
The International Pavilion of Film Music will be situated in the French International village (Esplanade Pantiero).
The composer Patrick Doyle (Nanny McPhee, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Hamlet, Indochine,...) will be this year's Honorary Sponsor of the International Pavilion of Film Music.
For the entire length of the festival, the UCMF will organise professional meetings, cocktails and live musical performances around the theme of film music.
