Hollywood in Vienna
Hollywood in Vienna is an annual film music gala taking place in the Vienna Concert Hall (Wiener Konzerthaus), where the Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award is presented. Last "Hollywood in Vienna" concerts took place on 24th and 25th September 2014.
In the course of each Hollywood in Vienna concert, one of the world's most renown film composers is honored by the City of Vienna and his or her work performed by the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra (RSO). The gala concert was initiated in 2007 by Sandra Tomek, B.O.F.M. Best of Film Music, and has since then been produced by B.O.F.M. and Echo Medienhaus and co-produced by Michael Balgavy.
