Tonhalle Orchester Film Music Concert and Competition


7th International Film Music Competition

Composers from 44 countries took part in the 7th International Film Music Competition to score Steve Cutts’ short film HAPPINESS. The jury is on hand on the evening to present the Golden Eye for „Best International Film Music 2018“ to the winning composer. The award is endowed with a CHF 10’000.- cash prize.

Film Music Concert: Thriller

What would a good thriller be without its gripping music? Almost as famous as the films themselves are the tracks from Mission Impossible, Kill Bill and „Tatort“ – so it’s only right to finally place this captivating film music centre stage. The programme includes two soundtracks by former Red Hot Chili Peppers percussionist, film composer and this year’s jury president Cliff Martinez. A concert full of suspense and energy performed by the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich.

Special Guest

The film scene „Ende der Illusionen“ from “Tatort Die Geschichte vom bösen Friedrich” (2016) composed by Swiss film composer Christine Aufderhaar will be performed live for the first time.
