Brussels International Film Festival

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

From June 20th to 29th 2019 Brussels will be brimming with a bouquet of emotions as the BRIFF takes place at Bozar, Flagey, Cinéma UGC, Palace and Cinéma des Galeries as well as evening open-air screenings along Boulevard Anspach, thus offering an urban and cinematographic experience to the festival goers.

A great summer party: Brussels in Motion

From the 20th to the 29th 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. Ten days at 24 frames per second, ten days of constant action, ten days of E-motion. All due respect to Cannes, Berlin and Venise, but in Brussels Quiet on the set! Action!
