Mission statement

The Film and Multimedia Interest Group (FMIG) strives to create a scholarly space to stimulate and disseminate research on music (broadly understood to include sound) within film, games, and multimedia, employing well-established music analytical methodologies, as well as newly developed analytical frameworks. By extension, this group will seek to facilitate dialogue and collaboration with researchers working in cognition, musicology, and allied fields.


FMIG meets at annual meetings, sometimes in coordination with similar groups from SMT or other societies. Activities have included planning special sessions, coordinating discussion groups and roundtables, maintaining a discussion platform, compiling non-commercially available scores, and creating resources (bibliographies and other documents) for the membership at large.

Online presence and discussion


Any SMT members are invited to join the FMIG e-mail listserv. We use this listserv to make announcements, initiate discussions, and generally facilitate communication amongst our members. Subscribe to the list or  view the list archive.


FMIG hosts a discussion forum on SMT Discuss under the Film and Multimedia category. We encourage any and all to post questions or discussion points here (you don't have to be a member of FMIG to join in the conversation)
