Ellen Vermeulen’s documentary feature 9999, Waiting for August by Teodora Mihai and Desert Haze by Sofie Benoot have all been selected for the International Documentary Festival Visions du Réel in Nyon, Switzerland. The line-up also reveals three shorts from Flanders, 28 Rue Brichaut, Maybe Darkness and PS São Paulo. Finally, California City, a new project by Sofie Benoot, Isabelle Tollenaere and Liesbeth De Ceulaer will also be presented at Pitching du Réel.
Benoot’s Desert Haze is to receive its world première in the international features competition at Visions du Réel, taking place from April 25 till May 3 this year.
Six promising young filmmakers have been awarded a wildcard, handed out by the Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF) through its annual VAF wildcard competition. Maaike Neuville’s Sonnet 81 and Deben Van Dam’s The Way of All Flesh were laureled among the fiction shorts; Juliette Joffé received a documentary wildcard for Maybe Darkness, as did Hannes Verhoustraete for 28 Rue Brichaut. This year’s animation wildcard went to Nienke Deutz for One, Two, Three, Piano! while Miki Ambrózy’s Fabric of Time earned him a wildcard in the filmlab section of the competition.
The wildcard competition organised by the Flanders Audiovisual Fund has already proven its value over the last few years. Its history includes previous winners such as Tom Van Avermaet (Death of a Shadow), Sahim Omar Kalifa (Land of the Heroes, Baghdad Messi), Gust Van den Berghe (Little Baby Jesus of Flandr, Blue Bird) and Gilles Coulier (Iceland, Mont Blanc).
