Edition1998

You know it. No sacrifice is too high for our team to lessen your insatiable thirst for rare cinematic jewels, surprises and new talent. Once more the Festival innovates itself with the creation of a supplementary section : the “7th ORBIT”, where we have composed a program for you that’s even more unconventional and bolder as usual.
Talk about spoiling…
Because it is not possible to stretch out the Auditorium of the Passage 44, the “7th” has found a home at cinema NOVA.
And this gives us the opportunity to resurrect the retrospectives : homage’s to Cronenberg, Caro & Jeunet, Ossang, Pitt
and those Big Scary Monsters.
Talk about spoiling part II…
This gives you no less than 50 extra screenings to satisfy your hunger for celluloid !
In total you will have to divide yourselves between 88 long features (hereby included a “Coming from Spain”, 13 World premières, 14 European premières and 51 Belgian premières) and 50 short films. And then we still have to talk about the exhibition in the Passage 44 (with our guest star Yoshitaka Amano), the Ball of the Vampires (this year in the Halles de Schaerbeek), the Fardel Body Painting Contest, the Unusual Fashion Show, the Workshop (with Lewis Gilbert at the helm), The Hunger at the Kultuurkaffee (V.U.B.), Cinénygma in Luxembourg, the Nights of Fantasy Film in Liège, Namurs, Ostend and La Louvière, the exhibition in the Ice Cellars of Brussels, the one in the Belgian Centre of the Comic Strip, the retrospective of the Media Library in the Auditorium, ….…………
Have a wonderful festival !
