1992 - 19th Internationaal Filmfestival van Vlaanderen-Gent
In pictures 07 Oct 1992
This 19th edition (October 7-18, 1992) sees a name change: from "Filmgebeuren van Gent" to "Film Festival of Flanders." More than 100 feature films are distributed over four festival sections and some 'firsts'. Thus, in the official competition "Impact of music on film", the prize for the "film with the best musical accompaniment" is named for the first time after Georges Delerue. A retrospective is dedicated to Argentine filmmaker Alejandro Agresti (also a member of the jury). Outside of competition, a number of important films are reserved for so-called "events": such as the gala opening with the premiere of the Flemish film Daens by Stijn Coninx: the spectacular closing night with the Disney cartoon The Beauty and the Beast and the special screenings on Youth Day, Dutch Day, Quebec Evening, Laurel and Hardy Day. But there is also a Focus on Quebec alongside the Filmspectrum which aims to show and unique panorama of world cinema with 40 titles. Finally, for the real cinephiles - in world premiere - a selection of film monuments from the Piper Heidsieck Classic Film Collection.
