The 13th edition of the Brussels Film Festival closed this Friday 12th of June with the awards ceremony in the presence of the winners. It was followed by the screening of the English movie X+Y, LE MONDE DE NATHAN in the presence of director Morgan Matthews. The official jury was formed by the French director Christian Carion, the Belgian director Olivier Masset-Depasse, the Italian actress Antonella Salvucci, the Belgian actress Erika Sainte, and the Flemish actor Wim Willaert.

 

Directing the Brussels Film Festival for six years, Ivan Corbisier can be proud of a great success. As a matter of fact, the festival has drown a crowd of 30.000, really happy people coming to watch the films, attend concerts and meetings at this event dedicated to the European cinema.

 

French director Jacques Doillon, special guest of this edition, has given a masterclass, which was hosted by Inès Rabadan and Véronique Jadin (ARFF), before introducing his film Mes séances de lutte at Cinematek, as a preamble to a retrospective dedicated to him, which runs until August 21st.
