October 18th, Friday join us at composer Christopher Young’s personal home for food, drinks entertainment and a personal autograph signing with Chris. The fun will start at 7PM and will go until the cops show up :) The Friday night Meet and Greet is an EXCELLENT change to meet some old friends and make some new ones. If you are new to this whole scene I can’t tell you enough how important it is to come to this. Within minutes you’ll start talking about film music and feel you’ve known this group your whole life!
October 19th, Saturday join us for THE Halloween concert of the decade. Varese Sarabande and the Golden State Pops Orchestra are joining forces to give us one terrifying concert as we all continue the year long celebration of 35 Years of Varese Sarabande Records. If you have never been to the GSPO in San Pedro, which is a short drive from Los Angeles, I can’t recommend them enough. The $25 FFM Pre-Register price does NOT include your ticket to the GSPO concert :) Tickets are NOW available and can be bought here
October 20th, Sunday join us for two star studded panels with several composers, Robert Townson and Sara Andon as we celebrate 35 Years of Varese Sarabande Records. We will have two panels and all the fun starts at 1PM. Our panel moderators this year again are super agent Mr. Richard Kraft from the Kraft-Engel Agency as well as Mr. Daniel Schweiger host of On the Score. The event will take place again at the beautiful Beverly Garland Hotel in their spacious Grand Ballroom. We plan on having our dealers room open as well. The Garland has supplied us with a special discounted rate which I’ll give out that special link to those who pre-register and are confirmed as going! After each panel we’ll have a short and sweet autograph signing where each fan will be allowed three items of their choice. So pick your top three from these talented folks to get autographed! This will be strictly enforced due to time constraints. Our time as well as the composers time is very limited and we need everyone working together so we can get these composers in and out as fast as we can. We will also have our dealer room back with a few vendors selling soundtracks for us.
We may have a few smaller get-togethers in between these events, possibly something Saturday around lunch time and/or a get-together after the second panel on Sunday October 20th. We’ll let you know for sure.

    I never knew about The Fans of Film Music Society, I would love to join. I will read up more about it! I’m an aspiring music composer interested in composing film music. Currently, I’m pursuing a bachelor of Audio Production in Miami. I will be posting some of my work very soon on my website: Check it out if you can! :)
