Shot largely at Aed Studios in Antwerp, the Emily Dickinson biopic is a UK-Belgium co-production.
The international jury was led by Jeremy Thomas. The veteran UK producer was also recognised by the festival for his contribution to cinema, receiving the lifetime achievement award.
Ahead of the closing-night screening of Belgian film-maker Bavo Defurne’s romantic drama Souvenir, Thomas and his jury – including Vietnamese director Tran Anh Hung, author Jonathan Coe and actresses Maaike Neuville, Lina El Arabi and India Hair – handed out the prizes.
Hot of the success of his score for Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, composer Joe Kraemer sits in with Deane and Brian for the first SCOREcast episode of the year. The trio talk through how Joe approached writing music for one of the biggest franchises in cinematic history and then enjoy some composer banter over the latest piece of another big franchise you may have heard of… a little film called Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But before all that, Deane has a conversation with Logic expert Edgar Rothermich, author of the Gem series of Logic tutorial texts, about why both composers choose Logic as their Daw and Edgar’s philosophy of deeply understanding your composing tools.

John Williams’ themes from “Star Wars” and “Jurassic Park.” Bill Conti’s “Rocky” fanfare. Vince Guaraldi’s music for TV’s “Charlie Brown” cartoons. The John Barry arrangement of Monty Norman’s “James Bond Theme.” Lalo Schifrin’s “Mission: Impossible.”
These are iconic film and TV themes, and viewers of today’s sequels, spinoffs and franchises might well feel cheated if they didn’t hear the music that is so indelibly associated with these franchises. But where to use them? And how to adapt them into a larger, original score?
That was the challenge faced by several composers this past year, only one of whom was actually working with his own themes: the venerable John Williams, who has been composing for more than half a century and whose original “Star Wars” music was written 38 years ago.
