Edition 2004

Ladies and Gentlemen… The Festival dish is served! The recipe? Roam the festivals and markets, gather some four to five hundred tasty looking morsels of film. Leave to soak for a few months, chop to pieces, bring to the boil, let it simmer and then cream off. What remains are some seventy little jewels with a crunchy European crust (40 % of which one Belgian movie!) and a spicy Asian filling (30%). Add to this an American sauce (20%) and season with rarities from Australia, Mexico, Chile, Canada and New Zealand. At the first bite, a strong flavour of science-fiction pervades, mixed with a combination of horror, humour and satire. The aftertaste is composed of a whiff of Sword & Sorcery, a dash of Kung-fu and a pinch of fairytales. It’s the ultimate movie buff’s treat! But watch out, it’s piping hot! Sensitive taste buds and weak stomachs are asked to abstain.
