“Film is emotion, a medium that touches everyone. Film Fest Gent offers the opportunity to combine an exclusive experience with a networking event. This combination results in memorable moments for you and your guests, inside and outside of the screening room. Treat yourself and your company to a VIP treatment at the 43rd edition of the festival and we guarantee that you will have a lot to talk about for a long time to come!”
Martijn Bal - Managing Director Film Fest Gent


Whether you wish to organise an evening for customers, or wish to establish contacts with prospects or simply treat your employees: Film Fest Gent is the right event for a VIP treatment.

Film Fest Gent stands for:

  • personal service with more than 20 years of hospitality experience
  • a prestigious cultural event with an international reputation and media attention
  • the presence of the Belgian film industry, directors and actors
  • eleven days of unique pre-premieres and remarkable films
  • quality and trendy catering by Coeur Catering
  • a magical VIP location plus a real red carpet experience


Film Fest Gent offers a wide variety of VIP packages for a night out with film where informal networking activities are central to the experience. You can opt for an all-in formula or a tailor-made formula.

Our all-in formulas include full service: parking, cloakroom and personal guidance by our hostesses for a party of at least four people. Our team of programmers chooses an accessible film for you and your guests. The screening room and the atmospheric reception hall will be shared with other companies. You can find all available dates on the ensuing pages.

A tailor-made formula can be created for large groups. It is possible to reserve an exclusive screening room and a reception hall. You receive the full service of an all-in formula, and, additionally, determine the date, screening room and the catering for your VIP event. Together with our programmers, you can choose a festival film to your liking which will spark a good conversation.

Do you have other suggestions or do you wish to propose and work on another concept, such as a seminar brunch, a family film on a Saturday for customers with children, or do you wish to use our VIP village (cap. 2,000 people) for a product presentation? Do not hesitate to contact us with a proposal.
