European fest to kick off in Brussels
Brussels 5th European Film festival will kick off on June 29, running until July 7. Belgium, like most European countries already has a busy line-up of film festivals. The Brussels event stands out by focussing on first or second features from European directors. Amongst those being shown this year are "The Art of Crying" by Peter Schonau Fog on a script by Bo Hansen, "Voleurs de chevaux/Horse Thieves" by Micha Wald on a script by Jean-Paul De Zaeytijd and "Does it Hurt (The First Balkan Dogma)" by Aneta Lesnikovska. Seven avant-premieres have been set up and Belgium's Cinémathèque will be showing some pearls from its vaults on the square facing the venue.
The festival will also be handing out an award in its second pitch contest. More details will follow closer to the day.
