Living in Los Angeles is awesome. There are hundreds of events, screenings, parties and exclusives that would make any film fan explode from joy. One of those awesome events has just been announced for the end of August. The Fans of Film Music gathering is a wonderful chance for film score aficionados to get together with some of the best composers in the industry to talk about their dual passion, film music.
The 2nd annual event has been put together by Peter Hackman, a film score die-hard who felt the need to keep an annual event going for fans of film music. Of all the niche groups of fans in the film world, film score fans rank amongst the smallest and most spread out. So this event is especially exciting as it brings film fans together from all around the world. And that isn’t hyperbole, Peter literally has people flying in from all over the world for the event.
More details on the event and a full list of attending composers can be found after the jump.
The event will be held at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, California and is centered around a 90 minute panel with the attending film composers. The panel has very limited seating available and seats will fill up fast.
For details on how to RSVP to the event check out the Fans of Film Music webpage, act fast because it is expected to fill extremely quickly. If you don’t get into the panel itself there will be an autograph session directly following that is open to the public, and any excuse to go to Dark Delicacies is worth it.
Here are the full details of the event:
