BMI and the SUNDANCE INSTITUTE will present the 18th annual COMPOWER/DIRECTOR ROUNDTABLE and 14th annual SNOWBALL during the 2016 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL in PARK CITY, UT. Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
“Music & Film: The Creative Process” will take place on MONDAY, JANUARY 25th, from 2:30p (MT) to 4:30p (MT), at the SAMSUNG STUDIO (638 Park Ave., PARK CITY). The conversation will be moderated by BMI VP Film/TV Relations DOREEN RINGER ROSS, exploring the role of music in film by focusing on the relationship between composer and director. Participants will discuss what goes into creating a successful film score, the ingredients of an effective composer/director relationship, the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL experience and more.
Commented RINGER-ROSS; "We are proud to be so closely aligned with SUNDANCE INSTITUTE’s FILM MUSIC PROGRAM throughout the year, and we are committed to shining a light on our composers at the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL because they provide an essential and deeply emotional element of filmmaking that is so subliminal that it often goes unnoticed and uncelebrated."
This year's panelists include PETER GOLUB, Director of SUNDANCE INSTITUTE’s FILM MUSIC PROGRAM; FILM MUSIC COMPOSERS LAB advisors GEORGE S. CLINTON, MIRIAM CUTLER and BLAKE NEELY; composer KRIS BOWERS and director HEIDI EWING, composer T. GRIFFIN and director ROGER ROSS WILLIAMS; composer FIL EISLER and director KIM A. SNYDER, among others.
THE SNOWBALL – to be held on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27th, at FESTIVAL BASE CAMP (475 Swede Alley, PARK CITY) – will feature a diverse lineup of talented BMI singer-songwriters including DREW HOLCOMB, ALEXANDRA JEAN and KT TUNSTALL, beginning at 8p (MT) and is open to all FESTIVAL CREDENTIAL holders.
