Film Fest Gent announces innovative composer Marco Beltrami as central guest 19th World Soundtrack Awards

- MARCO BELTRAMI live in CONCERT on 18 OCTOBER in GHENT including a suite from his Golden Globe nominated score for box office hit 'A QUIET PLACE'
- FILM COMPILATION ALBUM with a selection of Beltrami's film scores will be presented during the festival



Held on October 18th, the World Soundtrack Awards will welcome Marco Beltrami, two-time Oscar nominated composer and one of the most brilliant film composers of his generation, known for his unique collaborations with some of the world’s most respected and iconic filmmakers such as Kathryn Bigelow, James Mangold, Guillermo Del Toro, Wes Craven, Bertrand Tavernier, Tommy Lee Jones and Jean-François Richet.

The acclaimed American composer recently scored the critically-acclaimed box-office hit A Quiet Place, which was nominated for a Golden Globe for 'Best Score' and shortlisted for Best Score for the Oscars, Dan Gilroy’s Velvet Buzzsaw for Netflix, and National Geographic’s 2019 Oscar-winning documentary Free Solo.

Honoree Marco Beltrami:
"It is truly humbling to be recognized by Film Fest Gent and its World Soundtrack Awards for my body of work. I am so thrilled to follow such iconic composers who have been honoured in Ghent in previous years, including Carter Burwell, Alan Silvestri, Angelo Badalamenti, Craig Armstrong and many more."

Within the framework of the upcoming World Soundtrack Awards Gala, Film Fest Gent will host a full concert dedicated to Marco Beltrami’s film work. Brussels Philharmonic, conducted by Dirk Brossé, will perform the original scores composed by Marco Beltrami & Tamar-kali accompanied by film clips on the big screen.


Marco Beltrami established an early reputation as a genre innovator with his non-traditional horror scores for the Scream-franchise. Beltrami’s musical palette has since expanded to virtually all film genres. Beltrami has received accolades for his music including two Academy Award nominations for 'Best Score': for James Mangold’s drama 3:10 to Yuma and for Best Picture winner The Hurt Locker. In 2011 Beltrami won a 'Golden Satellite Award' (Best Film Score of the Year) for Soul Surfer. Beltrami also scored the Marvel film Logan, the theme for the hit video game Fortnite and Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut, First They Killed My Father.

Film Fest Gent’s music director Dirk Brossé: "We are thrilled to welcome Marco Beltrami at the World Soundtrack Awards Concert in Ghent! He’s currently one of the most all-round composers whose music moves within the most diverse musical styles and genres. Marco’s extensive orchestral color palette ranges from intimate transparent tone hues, such as his music for Tommy Lee Jones’ 'The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada', to large bombastic orchestral indulgences such as his scores to blockbusters 'World War Z' or 'Ben-Hur'. Dedicating considerable attention to melody and obsessed by rhythms, Marco disposes of a rich palette of both acoustic and electronic colors. Very much looking forward to this edition!"

Next to his creative and loyal collaboration with legendary genre directors Wes Craven and Guillermo Del Toro, Beltrami has lent his voice to such unique hit films as Live Free or Die HardTerminator 3: Rise of the MachinesGods of Egypt and I, Robot. Other remarkable and compelling scores include The Homesman and The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada directed by Tommy Lee Jones, the zombie comedy Warm Bodies by Jonathan Levin, Snowpiercer starring Chris Evans and directed by Joon-ho Bong, the Brad Pitt action thriller World War Z, James Mangold’s The Wolverine, as well as a couple of interesting collaborations with European-based directors: The Drop by Belgian Oscar-nominated director Michaël R. RoskamIn the Electric Mist by internationally acclaimed French director Bertrand Tavernier and both L’ennemi public n°1 and L’instinct du mort by French filmmaker Jean-François Richet.

Most recently, Marco Beltrami has completed the score for William Eubank’s Underwater and Ford v. Ferrari, directed by James Mangold and starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon, Paramount Pictures sci-fi feature Gemini Man directed by Oscar-winning director Ang Lee, the Zac Efron-starrer Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Vile, and Evil, and Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone. Beltrami is currently writing the original music to The Englishman.

Film Fest Gent also welcomes Brooklyn born musician and composer Tamar-kali, who, during last year’s World Soundtrack Awards, won the 'Discovery of the Year' award for Dee Rees’ Oscar-nominated film Mudbound. As an independent artist and composer, she is known for crafting her own unique alternative sound, combining classical orchestral music with post-punk sensibilities.

Her soulful, intense voice, range and versatility, allowed her to perform on a variety of international stages with a diverse list of artists from Vernon Reid and Roger Waters to Vijay Iyer and Me’shell Ndegeocello. Her sophomore film score for Come Sunday, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and Martin Sheen which debuted at last year’s Sundance Festival, was released in theatres and on Netflix in April 2018. Tamar-kali most recently scored Dee Rees’ newest project The Last Thing He Wanted.
