What goes into creating a successful film score? What makes for an effective director-composer relationship? We partner filmmakers and the composers they work with to answer these and other questions in this inspired roundtable discussion moderated by Doreen Ringer-Ross, BMI vice president of film/TV relations. Panelists include composer Craig Wedren and director David Wain (They Came Together), composer Blake Neely and directors Ryan White and Ben Cotner (The Case Against 8), composer Ennis Rotthoff and director David Wnendt (Wetlands), composer Mark Orton and director Sydney Freeland (Drunktown’s Finest), composer Gary Lionelli (Last Days in Vietnam), composer and Sundance Lab Advisor Miriam Cutler and Peter Golub, director of the Sundance Institute Film Music Program, composer Kathryn Bostic and director Justin Simien (Dear White People), composer John Dragonetti and director Brian Knappenberger (The Internet’s Own Boy), composer Keegan DeWitt and director Alex Ross Perry ( Listen Up Philip), and composer Ryan Beveridge and director Sterlin Harjo (This May Be the Last Time).

This event is open to all Festival credential holders and the general public as space permits. No tickets are required. Check the online film guide for program updates.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
