Fimucité 3: Film Music Festival – In Tenerife no-one can hear you scream!

As a nerdy kid I had ‘Great War Movie Themes’ and ‘James Bond Movie Themes’ in my music collection…still have a Bond CD, (the David Arnold compilation), so I was interested to hear about Fimucité 3, a festival celebrating movie soundtracks held annually in Santa Cruz and La Laguna.

This year’s theme is the Alien Movies, but also includes homage to the granddaddy of movie composers, Jerry Goldsmith.

Performances will take place in The Auditorio, TEA and Teatro Leal with a complimentary season of films being screened in the Filmoteca Canaria.

Special guest performers include Oscar winner Jan Kaczmarek, Mark Snow and Clint Mansell. With music covering films from Disney classics to Star Trek, the Omen and the X Files, there’s a right mix of moods from chirpy cheeriness to spine tingling chillers. The festival is rounded of at the Auditorio with a performance of music from the five alien movies and some of Jerry Goldsmith’s finest work.

Dates: 20th to 26th July

For more information about the programme check out their really cool website…but be careful a facehugger doesn’t jump out at you.
