An ideal space to reflect on the challenges that drive the future of a sector that is in constant transformation.
BIME BRINGS A DIVERSE PROGRAM TO BILBAO

Among the novelties of the next edition, BIME PRO will open up to new musical genres, such as classical music, electronic music and flamenco. The Film Music Lab will also be presented, where composers and film directors will work hand in hand, composing original music for different productions, the result of which can be seen live during the professional sessions.
This program will be accompanied by different panels on composition for film and audiovisual production, featuring leading figures from these fields. In addition, there will be a special program for labels with a focus mainly on independents. Another great novelty will be the BIME metaverse; and it is that the spirit of constant innovation that has characterized this event during its 10-year history, will take it to the metaverse in Uttopion, winners of the 2021 StartUp Competition.
