I guess we all agree on the fact that 2020 has not been that good of a year for all of us. Theatres closed, sets shut down,…. And no Timothée Chalamet on the big screen for the first year since 2014. Both the releases of Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch and Denis Villeneuve’s Dune are postponed until 2021.
Heartbreaking, but nonetheless, there is some light at the end of the tunnel for the Belgian film buffs. Next week, on October 13th, the annual Film Fest in Ghent takes place for a subsequent 11 days. Under specific safety measures though, but yes, the show must go on.
The 47th edition of the festival focuses on Belgian and German cinema and therefore, they created a beautiful poster with a combination of the German-Austrian actress Romy Schneider (Sissi) and German Actor August Diehl (Inglorious Basterds, A Hidden Life).
