The music industry has changed tremendously over the last decades, and musicians are always on the lookout for new ways to finance their music projects. Presenting one’s music to a music supervisor seems like the perfect solution, but emailing someone without knowing the person previously is rarely efficient. Creating strong business relationships is at the heart of M for Montreal’s mission, which is why we are organizing this intimate and interactive roundtable workshop where participants will be separated in small groups and will have 10 minutes to have the unique occasion to talk with a music supervisor, learn about his interests, his submission criteria and his needs! A Golden opportunity not to be missed!
Wednesday Nov. 14, 2:30pm-4:30pm, Hotel Zero 1, Alys-Robi room
