For the third time running, “Soundtrack Zurich” will take place during the Zurich Film Festival, a multi-day specialist event on film and media music. The event consists of workshops, panels and case studies on current topics in today’s film and media music scene. One of its aims is to facilitate the interaction between business partners as well as with the international guests of the Zurich Film Festival through networking sessions.

In cooperation with SUISA, “Soundtrack Zurich” also offers music creators a platform to get answers to their questions about revenues in the audiovisual sector. The core topic of this year’s SUISA workshop is the remuneration for online uses of music in films, series and advertising.
