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
Nov 11th – 15th 2019
International competition, exclusive previews, rare and unpublished films, live performances, conferences and symposia: for 5 days Gaîté Lyrique will live and vibrate under the pulse of images and music and discover contemporary worlds.

Listen too see’ – this is the motto of the MusikFilmFestival FxM FILM MEETS MUSIC, which brings together BIFF’s film concerts under one roof. Retrospectives for internationally renowned film composers, music documentaries, music videos and a discursive setting with lectures and talks.
Dock Of The Bay
A festival that functions like a living creature that changes over the course of its life, with the sole aim of offering the best selection of stories and presenting them on the big screen.
“Because if anything’s clear to us, it’s that we’re here because we very definitely want to be here, and because you’re here too. And, above all, because music and films make us very happy.”
