43rd edition of Film Fest Gent

The programme of the 43rd edition of Film Fest Gent is inspired by cinema from two different corners of the earth: starting with the most northern point of Europe for its Focus on Nordic Cinema and ending in the Far East for the Spotlight on Japan.

From the Swedish invasion of Hollywood in the silent film era to Denmark's Dogma 95 movement: the Nordic region has made formidable contributions to world cinema. Because of this, with its Focus on Nordic Cinema, Film Fest Gent aims to look beyond the ‘krimi-wave' the region is currently most known for. The Nordic Focus is emphasised by the festivals central campaign image, depicting one of the greatest movie stars the region has ever know: Greta Garbo.

Within the framework of the 150th birthday of the diplomatic relations between Japan and Belgium in 2016, Film Fest Gent is putting a Spotlight on Japan this upcoming October for its rich history in cinema.

The 43rd Film Fest Gent takes place from 11 - 21 October 2016. The World Soundtrack Awards are held on 19 and 20 October in Capitole Gent, with the Gala and Award Ceremony on the 19th and an extra WSA Concert without ceremony on the 20th.
