Danish Film & Media Composers
Danish Film & Media Composers, DFMC, is an association for members of The Danish Society for Jazz, Rock and Folk Composers, The Danish Composers’ Union, Danish Popular Authors and the music publishers.
The work of the DFMC is funded by KODA, a non-profit collective rights management society that administers Danish and international copyrights for music creators and publishers, when their music is performed in public.
From only about ten members at the start four years ago we are now 60. All are composers writing music for film and for the media.
We focus our attention on:
The Nordic Film Music Award
In December 2008 The Nordic Film Music Award was presented by the DFMC for the first time. The award, which was initiated on a modest scale by the association in 2008, has gained in importance. It is now awarded – in cooperation with the Nordic Film Composers’ Network, NFCN – as part of the prestigious Dragon Awards presented at the Göteborg International Film Festival, GIFF, the biggest of its kind in Scandinavia. In 2011 the Award was presented as a part of CPH:PIX, and in 2012 it will take place together with Reykjavik International Film Festival.
With this the DFMC has taken one step further towards attaining one of its main goals:
- to increase the focus on film and other cultural manifestations in the Nordic countries and on film music as an art form.
Activities for members
The nature of the film composer’s work often makes it a solitary one. To make up for this the DFMC invites its members to take part in various arrangements offering a chance to discuss diverse topics related to the job. Meetings normally take place every two months.
DFMC welcomes questions and ideas. The members of the board and the secretary can be reached at:
