In 2008, Film Score Monthly president, Lukas Kendall, invited fans to step away from their computer screens to actually meet one another. That first gathering in ‘08 was small in numbers, and grew dramatically in attending fans for the next gathering in 2009.  It was that ’09 gathering that drew Peter Hackman to L.A. That ’09 event was Hackman’s first opportunity to actually talk film music with other like-minded fans, and ignited his commitment to continuing that fan opportunity.  Unless you live in or around Los Angeles, you may go years, possibly your whole life, without ever having a single person to talk face to face about the greatest type of music there is, film music.

Lukas Kendall’s hectic schedule of releasing truly outstanding music did not allow him to continue his leadership commitment to the annual fan gathering, and Hackman was delighted to carry the torch that Kendall had began a couple of years earlier.

Fans of Film Music was formed in 2010.  Hackman, with the help of many L.A. based friends, was able to persuade seven Hollywood composers and two soundtrack labels to come and chat with some die-hard fans about film music at that first ’10 gathering.

The photos above are from the first three years of our event.  Daniel Schweiger was nice enough to host our panel discussions every year.  Super agent, Richard Kraft was nice enough to join us and host a panel in 2012.  Alan Dull was our great graphic artist who designed our logo, poster, CD and everything else we use for the event.  Famed photographer Iki Ikram has contributed his services to our event with his excellent eye for incredibly magical photos that truly capture the essence of our event.  More photos are on page two which you can access at the TOP of any page.  Our goal to have a small quaint gathering of people come together and talk about a mutual love of film music was realized.  We have since grown in numbers and in 2012 moved to the grand ballroom of the beautiful Beverly Garland hotel.  Through the years we’ve given away free to fans, CD’s, posters, 8x10’s, DVD’s, autograph memorabilia donated by fans and Peter Hackman.  This event is designed to let the fans say THANK YOU in person to these incredibly hardworking and creative people that we all love so much, the composers! 

Hackman’s opening speech touched the heart of the group’s commitment:

“Whether you compose the music or buy it, we are all fans of film music.”
