  • Festival Description:

    Since 1983 the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival has roused the European capital from its winter sleep for the most expected cinematographic event of the year.

    Bursting to the seams with amazing spectacles and original manifestations such as the make-up contest, the unusual fashion show, the body painting contest, animation from street theatre companies, numerous exhibitions and the renowned vampire ball party, the BIFFF is a warm and atmospheric celebration of about everything related to the genre.

    Each year, the BIFFF welcomes more than 60,000 spectators and invites over 100 international guests, making it one of Europe's leading genre film festivals.

    In 2011, this true film feast will extend itself over 13 days, showing more than 100 films, ranging from fantastic, thriller, sci-fi, horror and cult to underground, and spoiling genre die hards as well as the entire family, this thanks to its FantastiKids side-section.
