Next Music Film Festival:

April 12th 2019 | Festival Bordeaux

Inspired by the recent explosion of innovative, high-quality cinema with a focus on the world of music, the Music Film Festival Network is a new international alliance of film festivals based on the belief that ideas exchanged are a multiplication of ideas.

The MFFN, which brings together ten founding members based in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the UK, had its first official meeting in February 2019 at the Seeyousound Festival in Turin.

The growing interest in films that present the sights, sounds and stories of the music and the musicians who make it, shows the audience’s appetite for the unique and inspiring mandates of these festivals.

The Events of the Music Film Network (MFFN):

April 12th – 19th 2020

Seeyousound was founded in Turin in 2014; its goal and dream was to recognize an outstanding position for the importance of the relationship between cinema and music. It is the first festival in Italy dedicated entirely to this theme.
