Cinéma Tous Ecrans selects

Nicolas Provost’s feature debut The Invader has been selected for this year's Cinéma Tous Ecrans Festival (4-10 November). Also screening at the fest are two shorts from Flanders: Gilles Coulier's new Paroles and VAF Wildcard winner Moon Blaisse's short Sometime Later. The 17-year-old Swiss fest has a tradition of selecting films that break through ‘audiovisual barriers'.

Still from Gilles Coulier's short ParolesIn 2010, director Gilles Coulier was selected for Cannes’ Cinéfondation with his previous short, Iceland, which was only his third-year project at the Sint-Lukas Film Academy. His graduation project, Paroles, is now starting its international career at Cinéma Tous Ecrans. The director describes his new short cryptically as ‘Nightly encounters imply a return, a return that should make a departure easier.’

Local fests add Flemish flavour to line-ups

May promises to be a busy month for Flemish docs and shorts. Both the Docville International Documentary Festival in Leuven (29 April-7 May) and the Brussels Short Film Festival (28 April-8 May) are scheduling a strong selection of Flemish titles. With attention for Flemish productions on the rise internationally, indigenous fests are following course.

Antwerp Central selected for DocvilleThe seventh edition of documentary fest Docville is showcasing an ambitious programme, with yet to be released films, previews and one-off screenings. Among the 70 selected docs are a number of Flemish highlights such as Grande Hotel by Lotte Stoops and Waidmannsheil by Klaas Boelen, which were both selected for Hot Docs this year, as well as Peter Krüger’s creative documentary, Antwerp Central, which recently won the Grand Prix at the International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA).
