  • Music ON Film was created in Barcelona and looks for different ways of integration between image and sound. The sessions include videoclip compilations going through different styles and periods, or even more specific and oriented to a concrete subject.

    MOF wants the spectator not only to watch a good video inspired in a good song, but also the historical and musical context that is behind every piece.

    The section 'Video of the Month' approaches to singular clips not screened on MOF yet, selected according to different criteria and representing particular contexts. Besides this, some other videos alredy shown in MOF projections are also below these lines.

    Music ON Film has moved around Barcelona (Inusual Project), Pamplona (La Sonora) and Tenerife (Aguere Cultural, CasAbierta).
