Germany, Morocco, Asia and the art of the pitch in Brussels

For 32 years already, the Festival International du Film Ind├ępendant has been pioneering challenging movies from around the world. Between Nov 1 - 6, the Brussels-based event will be presenting a series of works from young German film-makers (such as "Katze im Sack" photo), a selection from Morocco and as usual a strong section covering Asian film.

FIFI is also noted for its "rencontres". The professional meetings this year will cover co-productions with Asia, a look at the situation in Morocco and a talk on the art of the pitch called "Sell the story, don't tell the story". The reason I mention it is that I will be talking there, and hope to enable young scriptwriters and drectors to meet up. The event will mostly be in French. More details will follow, but note the date already: Saturday Nov. 5 at 11 am.
