The Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF) has decided to issue grants to 19 feature projects, amongst which are director Dominic Deruddere’s latest feature Flying Home and Bullhead producer Savage Film’s new project The Wandering Garden*. Futhermore there’s Speechless* by director Hilde Van Mieghem and Jan Verheyen’s The Verdict.
Five projects were granted development support, among them two Caviar productions. Production grants went to Roel Mondelaers’ Plan Bart, Dominique Deruddere’s long-awaited new film Flying Home and tv-director Douglas Boswell’s first-effort feature The Wandering Garden*. Moreover, six feature projects were handed screenplay support.
The Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF) recently approved funding for 26 feature-length fiction projects. The list includes much anticipated projects, such as Stijn Coninx’s Marina and Pieter Van Hees’s Waste Land, that can start production. Dominique Deruddere’s Flying Home and Jessica Woodworth and Peter Brosens’ Kebab Royal also received development support, while Lucifer by two-time Cannes selected director Gust Van den Berghe and Marry Me by Kadir Balci got script funding for their next projects.
Epidemic, the production company behind Koen Mortier’s 22nd of May and Ex Drummer, received production support for both Bruno Forzani and Hélène Cattet’s The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears and Waste Land, a new film by Pieter Van Hees (Dirty Mind, Left Bank). Brussels-based production outfit Savage Film (Bullhead) can start production on Fabrice Du Welz’s Alleluia, while A Private View (Oxygen) is set to shoot Joël Vanhoebrouck’s Brasserie Romantique, which was written by Jean-Claude Van Rijckeghem and Pat Van Beirs (who both scripted Moscow, Belgium).
