By playing with our collective filmic memory, it’s cinematic codes and narrative language, Plot Point questions the boundaries of reality and fiction. In Plot Point all the actions and characters are real people in real life, filmed with a hidden camera through the cinematic eye of the filmmaker and without any set ups or instructions. New York City, its citizens and American cop land with its howling police cars, uniforms, ambulances, and crowded streets, very soon turn into a fictive filmic scenery.

All eyes are on Flanders at this year’s European Film Festival in Les Arcs (15-22 December), with the fest organising a Focus on Belgium. No less than eight Flemish features, as well as three shorts are part of the focus. Belgian Cinema from Flanders is also well represented at the Arc 1950 coproduction forum with three projects on the bill. Additionally, Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth’s The Fifth Season is screening in the International Competition in Les Arcs and therefore in the running for a Crystal Arrow.
For its fourth edition, the European Film Festival in Les Arcs chose to add a Focus on Belgium to its line-up. Chaired by Artistic Director Frédéric Boyer, who after Cannes’ International Critics’ Week is also artistically leading the Tribeca Film Festival, the selection committee in Les Arcs nominated eight Flemish feature films and three shorts.
