Film Fest Gent today announced the James Horner Tribute Concert, which will take place on October 17, 2024 in Muziekcentrum De Bijloke, where a selection of the legendary composer’s scores will be performed. Dirk Brossé will lead the Brussels Philharmonic in this musical celebration. Long time colleague and friend of Horner, Simon Franglen, is involved in the program’s curation and will be in attendance at the event. Franglen collaborated with Horner on such films as Titanic, Avatar and The Amazing Spider-Man and completed his score for The Magnificent Seven before composing the music for Avatar: The Way of Water, for which he won the WSA Discovery of the Year Award last year. Franglen will return to the WSA Ceremony & Concert on October 16, where a suite from his The Way of Water score will be performed. Tickets are now available on and

Philippe Rombi has previously been announced as the guest of honor at the World Soundtrack Awards Ceremony & Concert on October 16.
