Composers Lab


The Composers Lab offers a unique chance for emerging composers to meet with some of the most successful professionals in their field and to find out what the real score is in the world of moving image composition.

Over five days, eight Scottish/Scottish based composers will attend EIFF to learn from leading film composers, directors, music editors and supervisors who will lend their insight, advice and expertise.

The Lab will take place from 23- 27 June 2014. Selected participants will be provided with a full programme of sessions and screenings giving them a fully rounded view of the 'ins and outs' of working in their chosen field.

Participants are also given a full Festival pass and invited to attend other industry events that are taking place during the Festival. Those based outside Edinburgh will also receive accommodation during the Lab dates.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Wednesday 30 April

Feedback from past participants:

"Overall the lab left me feeling more enthused and encouraged and energised in ways I did not anticipate; a very stimulating experience."

"the sessions were so intimate with the composers that we came away from every session with fresh knowledge and bursting with ideas. For me it was the perfect place to get that first boost on our journey as emerging composers."
