Film Fest Ghent and Courtisane join forces again in 2021
After a successful collaboration in 2020, Film Fest Ghent and Courtisane - FFG's little Ghent-based festival brother - will join forces for the upcoming festival edition as well. Contrary to last year, when the joint forces focused on bringing the Portuguese director Pedro Costa to Ghent for his drama 'Vitalina Varela', the entire festival programme of the adventurous film festival will now run parallel to Film Fest Ghent in October 2021.

Submit your film
The 48th Film Fest Gent is scheduled October 12th to 23rd 2021. Deadline for entering your film for the next edition is 1 August 2021.
