The Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival commonly known as BIFFF is back in town for its 35th edition.
“In 1983 everybody thought we were completely nuts to start with a genre film festival. But we couldn’t care less. What we wanted was to share movies you couldn’t see anywhere else with our friends, movies that found themselves on the margins of the industry and were sometimes even looked down upon. But we knew better and we wanted to infect as many as possible with the fantastic virus” explained Georges Demote, BIFF Director.
With more 100 movies throughout 13 days, BIFFF will gather both world and international premières; ranging from fantastic, thriller, science-fiction, horror, cult and underground cinema.
Every year, BIFFF welcomes more than 60 000 spectators and invites more than 100 international guests, making it one of Europe’s leading film festivals.
