A very well-organised film festival focusing on the theme "Music in Films". Highly-endowed prizes facilitate sales within the Benelux states. Launched in 2001, the World Soundtrack awards celebrate the art of film music. The festival is part of the World Soundtrack Summit, an annual gathering of film composers and other professionals in film music. "Pitch Point Benelux (PITCH.BNL) is a platform for producers from Belgium and foreign production companies focusing location and shooting problems. The festival also organises DIGIFORUM & DIGIFEST, focusing on digital cinema (lectures, workshops and screenings).
The purpose of the festival is to promote the art of film making in all its shapes and to emphasise the variety and richness of the medium as an art form. The festival has an Official Selection with films in and out of competition. It also includes various side-sections outlined in articles 8 to 11 below. All films (except for the retrospective titles) will be screened in at least their Belgian première (so not shown in Belgium before). Upon proposal by the organising committee, the festival will award a special award of honour to one or more living film personality in recognition of their merits and contribution to the art of filmmaking.
