Since its launch in 1989, the success of Mediterranean Film Festival of Brussels does not dry up. The Med is a beautiful human adventure. To try out the organization of such a festival is an ambitious bet, raised every time with panache. More than 10,000 festival-goers met there in 2017, film lovers, curious, professionals, guests international and Belgian students.
On the program: about sixty films (fiction, documentary and short films), concerts, evenings and a Mediterranean-style market that will let the public discover the flavors of shimmering colorful cultures.
For this 18th edition, the Med is happy to associate itself with the “MOROCCO 2018” year, initiated by Wallonia Brussels International (WBI). In the framework of this collaboration, several fiction and quality documentaries will let us discover Morocco. For this year, the Med sheds a particular light on the lives of young people in the Mediterranean by addressing topics such as homosexuality, dropping out of school, or integration in society.
True to its commitments, the Med is also a place for reflection on audiovisual education. Workshops and many debates organized in partnership with cultural operators in Brussels are on the program.
The festival is also the symbol of culture for all, without distinction age, gender, culture, environment social. For these reasons, the Med continues to offer sessions, master classes at a reduced rate and more classically priced projections.
Today, more than ever, there is a need of culture, cinema, of this art characterized by vitality and diversity that allow us to build bridges between civilizations and cultures.
From November 30th to December 7th, in different places in Brussels: at Botanique, at Cinema Adventure, in Bozar but also in the cinema Palace. This time too, the Med will organize sessions outside of Brussels. These 8 days will be an opportunity for you to dive in the Mediterranean, but also an opportunity to spend moments with family or friends.
