The 20th edition of SoundTrack_Cologne, which took place in Cologne between June 20 and 23, was a big success: thanks for your contribution!
With 551 accredited, SoundTrack_Cologne celebrated its 20th anniversary - with a plus of 30%. During three and a half days, 85 speakers took part in 50 panels, workshops and networking events focused on connecting the composition and sound design world with the film, TV and video game industry.
Within the women and international matchmaking events, 258 matches were successfully achieved between producers, directors, music supervisors, music publishers, film composers and sound designers.
Therefore, we would like to say thank you to the speakers who accepted our invitation and all the attendees to be at our workshop talks, case studies, matchmaking sessions and screenings.
According to Michael P. Aust, "the participation of high-level speakers - this year including two Academy Award winners -, the learning spaces and the networking activities that are the mainstay of the congress allow STC20 to remain, 20 years after its first edition, Europe's leading congress on music and sound in film, TV, games and media".
A Filmmusic congress and film festival like ours would not be possible without funding. Therefore, we would like to give special thanks to our main supporters: the Stadt Köln, the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Industry, Climate Protection and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Ministry for Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media and the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW.
We want to thank all guests, speakers and sponsors for this great festival.
It was a pleasure to celebrate the 20th anniversary of SoundTrack_Cologne with you!
