Cannes 2022: film music composers in the spotlight with sacem - actus ciné

Emblematic, the rise of the steps is largely so for its music which punctuates the steps of those who are lucky enough to walk the red carpet: The Carnival of the Animals, Camille Saint-Saëns. In this image, what would be The Godfather without the mythical soundtrack of Nino Rotathe films of Sergio Leone without sheet musicEnnio Morricone Where Contempt without Camille’s theme by Georges Delerue ?


There is no shortage of examples: music has a special place in the success of the feature films and short films it cradles. Thus, as an institutional partner of the Cannes Film Festival, Sacem pays tribute to composers of film music by deploying a parade of highlights, in particular a climb of the steps of the composers on May 22 at 6 p.m.

Alongside the director and screenwriter, the composer is the third author of a cinematographic workhighlighted Patrick SigwaltComposer and Chairman of the Board of Sacem. On behalf of the composers I represent, I am proud that Sacem is playing its full part in this new edition of the Cannes Film Festival and is continuing its commitment to promote their talent and their creative role.

To mark this 75th edition of Cannes, composers such as Alexandre Desplat (Cut!), Camille (Bodice), Mr Oizo (Smoking makes you cough), Anne-Sophie Versnaeyen (Masquerade) or Yuksek (La nuit des chasseurs), to name but a few, will be present to represent the symbol of excellence and the recognized talent of the French school of film music.
