Fimucité will celebrate its 18th anniversary in style to the rhythm of musicals

The Festival Internacional de Música de Cine de Tenerife (FIMUCITÉ), the oldest event of its kind in the world, founded and directed by composer and conductor Diego Navarro, comes of age with a new edition that will amaze film and music fans, thanks to the support of the Cabildo de Tenerife and Turismo de Tenerife as main sponsors, along with the Ayuntamientos of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and San Cristóbal de La Laguna and Gobierno de Canarias, among other public and private entities. The theme chosen for this edition, which will take place between July 5th and 20th, is musicals and their legendary film adaptations.

Since talkies entered the movie arena, the musical has been an integral part of cinema history, with memorable classics such as ‘The Wizard of Oz’ (1939), ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ (1952), ‘West Side Story’ (1961) or ‘ Cabaret’ (1972). Furthermore, in recent years we have witnessed a rebirth with new and applauded offerings, with standouts such as ‘Moulin Rouge’ (2001), ‘LA LA LAND’ (2016) or ‘The Greatest Showman’ (2017). FIMUCITÉ pays tribute to this genre that has fueled the dreams of Hollywood in its eighteenth edition, through its programme of concerts and parallel activities.

This celebration of the musical will feature an exceptional guest: Justin Hurwitz, the composer of the score for ‘La La Land’, for which he was awarded with two Oscars, for Best Original Score and Best Original Song (‘City of Stars’, award shared with Benj Pasek and Justin Paul). The acclaimed scorer of other films such as ‘Whiplash’, ‘First Man’ or ‘Babylon’ will lead the Orquesta Sinfónica de Tenerife in one of the programme’s key concerts.
