The Brussels European Film Festival closed today on the 9th of July at Flagey with the prize ceremony, presented by Dominique Janne (Festival Director) and Jan De Clercq (Programme Director) and followed by the screening of the film «Douches Froides» by Antony Cordier.

Organized from the 1st to the 9th of July, the Festival for the first time joined forces with Cinédécouvertes, the summer event of the Belgian Film Museum. During these nine days, spectators could discover 48 films of high standards and participate in ten memorable parties! The Festival brought together 27 first or second European feature films while Cinédécouvertes with its 21 films extended the selection to cover the five continents.

Several films have taken un the status of a real event, most notably “Czech Dreams”, in incredible practical joke played in the world of publicity, directed by Vit Klusak and Filip Remunda, “The Great Ecstasy of Robert Carmichael”, a remarkable first feature film by English Thomas Clay, or also the world premiere of “Ordinary Man”, the second feature film of the Belgian filmmaker Vincent Lannoo.

Directors, actors, producers : many of them were here to present their films or simply to lend their support to the young European cinema. The Festival has thus hosted Frédéric Balekdjian, Daniel Billiet, Jeff Bodart, Jérôme Bonnell, Philippe Bourgueil, Nathalie Boutefeu, Rachida Brakni, Jan Bucquoy, Thomas Clay, Antony Cordier, Tone De Cooman, Renaud Delourme, Claire Denis, Dominique Deruddere, Thomas De Thier, Catharina Deus, Daniel Espinosa, Carlo Ferrante, Noël Godin, Christine Grulois, Jan Hammenecker, Marion Hänsel, Thierry Jousse, Dagur Kári, Joe Lang, Vincent Lannoo, Bouli Lanners, Serge Larivière, Johan Libéreau, Stefan Liberski, Lio, Vincenzo Marra, Philippe Maynial, Pierre Perrier, Micha Pletinckx, Bruno Putzulu, Filip Remunda, Anthony Rey, Arash T.Riahi, Steven Schoukens, Assumpta Serna, Georges Siatidis, Salomé Stévenin, Hannes Stoehr, Irena Taskovski, Vera Van Dooren, Jaco Van Dormael, and many, many others !

Composed of young European actors and directors, the Official Jury had to award prizes among fourteen films of the competition. Other jurys also had prizes to award amounting to a total value of 55.000 €.

Moved to the month of July for the first time this year, the Brussels Festival had a greater possibility of choice for its programme. Looking at from the ticket sales, spectators have flocked to the Festival in large numbers.
