13e Internationaal Filmgebeuren van Vlaanderen-Gent 1986
The 1986 programme goes wide: "from pure exploitation film to the most profound auteur film," according to the programme guide.
The festival also moves to other cities this year "because of accessibility problems during past editions": 15 films are also shown in Kortrijk this year at Pentascoop (now Budascoop) and the former cinema Limelight.
In 1986, Raoul Servais chairs the jury - which also includes Marc Didden, David Mansfield, Gerrard Verhage and Jurre Haanstra. This year, the Internationaal Filmgebeuren also cooperates with Carrefour '86, the biennial international meeting days of animation film, organised by the Studiecentrum voor Animatiefilm at the animation department at the KASK, of which Raoul Servais was the initiator.
A highlight in 1986 was the visit of Anthony Perkins, who came to present his new film Psycho III. There is also a tribute dedicated to his earlier work.
Finally, the 1986 Film Event also programmes several film and music events, two of which will have their world premiere in restored versions: the audience will thus get to see L'Inhumaine by Marcel Herbier and Nosferatu by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau accompanied by live music performance.
