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 composers will attend EIFF to learn from leading film composers, directors, music editors and supervisors who will lend their insight, advice and expertise. Participants are also given a full Festival pass and invited to attend other industry events that are taking place during the Festival.
In October 2013, participants were brought together again to attend the Film Festival Gent and experience the film music focus and events that the festival offered.

Feedback from past participants:
"The lab was a wonderful opportunity to meet like-minded people, ask questions, network and learn new skills."
"It made the whole dream of being a film composer very real and at the same time, attainable. Composers can be quite solitary beings so it was nice to have them all together sharing for the week."
