In 2018, the International Film community will see the return of the Brussels Independent Film Festival, an annual, weeklong event that highlighted independent and experimental cinematic talent for almost four decades.
’18 BRUSSELS INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL
(Short-films) Februari 11-18 2018
The centre multimedia in brussels founded the brussels independent film international festival (festival international du film indépendant de bruxelles) in 1974, to focus explicitly on super-8 films and other technically experimental cinematic styles. Although the festival was originally devoted to more highly experimental pieces, it expanded to include many different types of independent offerings.
The festival has hosted many noteworthy filmmakers: pedro almodóvar (all about my mother, talk to her), françois ozon (swimming pool, 8 women), and nanni moretti (the caiman). Unfortunately, in its original incarnation, the festival came to an end in 2012.
Inspired by that original movement, the revived brussels independent film festival will continue to emphasize lesser known, vanguard cinematic works and further its tradition of galvanizing budding talent. As in its earlier years, the 2018 festival will showcase films from a small, national cinema in order to examine the chosen culture’s filmic trends in more detail.
