In its first edition, the Brussels International Film Festival (BRIFF) is taking over our capital city.

From June 20th to 30th 2018 Brussels will be brimming with a bouquet of emotions as the BRIFF takes place at Bozar, Flagey, Cinéma UGC, Cinéma Vendome, Palace, and Cinéma des Galeries as well as evening open-air screenings along Boulevard Anspach and at the Mont des Arts, thus offering an urban and cinematographic experience to the festival goers.

A great summer party: Brussels in Motion

From the 20th to the 30th of June, there will be lights, elegance, and glamour, in other words, magic in the air, from the hushed crowds in the darkened venues to the uninhibited late night festivities. Eleven days at 24 frames per second, eleven days of constant action, eleven days of E-motion. All due respect to Cannes, Berlin and Venise, but in Brussels Quiet on the set! Action!
