Cinequest presents five from Flanders

Geoffrey Enthoven’s HalfwayPlan Bart, directed by Roel Mondelaers and Marry Me, the new feature by Kadir Balci, are all to have their North American premieres at the Cinequest Film Festival in Silicon Valley (24 February – 9 March). Piss & Vinegar and Wien for Life, two Flemish shorts, also receive their international premieres at the festival. In the Heart, a co-production with Flanders starring Koen De Graeve, completes the Flemish line-up.

HalfwayMarry Me, Kadir Balci’s second feature after Turquaze, tells the story of Sibel and Jurgen who get engaged following a brief affair.
