Shame, this year’s Venice Film Festival awarded film, was chosen as the opening night film. Iain Canning, the producer of the film, hosted a Q&A with the composer, Harry Escott.

Iain said to WalesOnline, “Music is incredibly important. In terms of getting an inner voice of our characters, it plays a huge part. It’s also been important to the films I’ve worked on before.” When talking about the relationship between film and music. More worth-mentioning, Iain used to be a Cardiff University student, study journalism, film and broadcasting during 1997 to 2000.

Another masterpiece showed during Soundtrack was Ralph Fiennes’ Coriolanus. Simon Daniel, said after watching this film, “I knew that Coriolanus won’t be in cinemas until January 2012, I’m a big fan of Ralph Fiennes, so I was really happy that Soundtrack gave me this chance to watch it now!”
