The German rock star, and occasional actor Herbert Gronemeyer will head up this year’s international film music jury at the Zurich Film Festival.
Together with a group of five musicians, composers and directors, he will pick the five finalists for this year’s film score competition. The five original short scores will be world-premiered in front of a live audience in Zurich on October 5. After the performance, the jury will pick the winner of the award for Best International Film Music 2017.
Gronemeyer is one of the top-selling German-language artists of all time. His fifth album 4630 Bochum (1984) and his 11th album Mensch (2002) are the third and first best-selling records in Germany respectively and Groenmeyer has combined album sales of more than 13 million.
The 61-year-old singer has also had a side career as an actor, appearing as war correspondent Lt. Werner in Wolfgang Petersen’s Das Boot (1981) and more recently had a walk-on role in Anton Corbijn’s A Most Wanted Man.
