The Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF) recently approved funding for 26 feature-length fiction projects.

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.

Bogdan Dreyer's The IdiotEpidemic, 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 MindLeft 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).
