Don't miss! the short film festival…

(BRUSSELS2) Anyone who has never been to the Short Film Festival cannot know real Brussels life, this sweet mix of the festival, cool, where you can sip your favorite drink, discover short films that you have never seen before. had the opportunity to see and that we would never have been able to see – often real gems – discussing the end with a few actors, producers, directors, sometimes completely unknown... today... or who we don't recognize afterwards – “Ah yes it was something! No ?" -. Where we find this atmosphere that is both relaxed and also very professional which is the charm of this city in the South of Northern Europe that is Brussels.

Around sixty films are in competition this year. Don't miss the night of the Court, April 26, until 3 a.m. The “short is long” cycle, of those who went through the short film box and are today famous for their feature films. A delight. Children and schoolchildren are entitled to specific sessions. And another genre, “Court Mais trash” (Monday April 28, Thursday May 1), with offbeat films or with sharp humor, made by young independents.

This festival is not just a luminous canvas. There are also “Speed-pitching” sessions which offer 7 minutes to young screenwriters to convince renowned producers of the merits of their project. Notice to amateurs…
