Openingsfilm of the 2nd edition of the Music Film festival: 'Knowing the Score'. A portrait of Australian conductor Simone Young, an inspiring, brilliant woman who rose to the top in a man's world with her wit, determination and the baton.

Dutch première of this film

New York, London, Berlin, and Vienna—Simone Young has conquered them all in one of the most male-dominated professions: conducting opera and classical music. The girl from Manly Beach, now a woman with so many firsts to her name, she’s tired of the whole “woman” title haunting her.

The film was produced and financed by Margie Bryant, Serendipity Productions. Bryant, having made a documentary about Simone 25 years ago, called “ The Young One” decided to make this new documentary. Australian actress Cate Blanchett, who starred in the movie ‘Tár’ about a female conductor, stood up as executive producer of the film. ‘Knowing The Score; premieres in the Netherlands at the Music Film Festival in Tilburg.
