    Well, Covid also influences the Gent Film Fest and its World Soundtrack Awards.

    Alexandre Desplat and Gabriel Yared guests of honour for 20th World Soundtrack Awards

    On the occasion of the 20th anniversary, the WSA is proud to welcome back Alexandre Desplat, record holder of the World Soundtrack Film Composer of the Year Award, Gabriel Yared, guest of honour at the very first edition of the WSA, and Michael Abels, Discovery of the Year 2019. Their music, as always performed by the Brussels Philharmonic and Vlaams Radiokoor and conducted by Maestro Dirk Brossé, will be prerecorded and will be part of the live event and the livestream.

    Yup, I got the mail too.

    I guess it's kinda "lucky" for me that they chose Desplat as guest again, a composer I generally dislike. So it makes the prospect of 'missing out' more tolerable. Yared is OK, but no big favourite either. Abels, I've never really understood untill I heard his excellent score for BAD EDUCATION recently.

    Let's just get to 2021 already, with - hopefully - more interesting (to me) guests, open borders and (hopefully) travel money on my account.
    I am extremely serious.

    Recommendations for Bregt at Film Fest Gent:

    My recommendations:

    DRUNK - Vinterberg is back in form! And it deals with something I've experienced myself. Not just the drunk bit, which is every weekend, but being drunk while holding lectures!
    FOR SAMA - one of the most powerful documentaries I've seen this year
    PSYCHOBITCH - Norwegian youth film with heart
    UNDINE - Petzold is back in form too, with gorgeous magic realism
    WENDY - not on the level of THE BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, but definitely watchable

    ....and obviously all the 'classics' from film history.

    My colleagues' recommendations (I haven't seen them yet):

    ALL THE PRETTY LITTLE HORSES
    FIRST COW
    LAST AND FIRST MEN - Jóhannsson and Iceland; this is for you, Bregt!
    NOMADLAND - possibly the biggest Oscar contender this year

    Would like to have seen THE GLORIAS too, if only for the Goldenthal score in-context (already have the album), but it will probably premiere here in due time.
    I am extremely serious.
