This year we proudly present FEST - Music Walk With Me, a brand-new event, six days with concerts, showcases and DJ performances, where artists that want to collaborate with the Film and TV scene, or currently have a connection with that industry can reinforce and promote it. It will take place during the 19th edition of FEST – New Directors | New Films Festival, between the 20th and 25th of June, in Espinho, Portugal.
The event will provide an incredible opportunity for networking between musicians and filmmakers. With a matchmaking platform, these professionals can connect and explore new interdisciplinary collaboration opportunities. Approximately 800 film industry professionals will be in attendance, seeking musicians for developing projects such as music videos and complementary content use.
In turn, musicians will have the opportunity to present their work to prominent film producers and directors, creating a channel for dialogue and partnership. The high networking capacity of this event will allow professionals to establish new connections, expand their network of contacts, and discover new opportunities for their careers.
Each selected showcase will receive a fee of 250 euros. Artists will also receive FEST-PRO passes, which will grant access to the two parallel festivals, conferences, and networking activities, and will have access to the "Networking Dinners" on the day of their performance
