Film Fest Gent believes that an opening and closing party alone is not enough for a festival celebrating its 40th anniversary. For this reason, on Saturday 12 October, Kinepolis Gent will be hosting a centrepiece gala evening featuring a pre-premiere of Alfonso Cuarón's outer space thriller ‘Gravity’, which stars George Clooney and Sandra Bullock.
This ‘Soirée Ciné’, complete with drinks afterwards in the VIP tent, a DJ set by Olivier Tjon from Goodlife, entertainment from Maison Mademoiselle and a cocktail dress code, will be a new highlight of the 40th Film Fest Gent. If you would like to attend, tickets can already be purchased for € 20 from www.filmfestival.be.
Alfonso Cuarón (‘Y Tu Mamá También’, ‘Children of Men’) opened the Venice Film Festival last week with ‘Gravity’. The film, which enjoyed its world premiere at the festival, was received with huge enthusiasm by the critics. “If the film past is dead, Gravity shows us the glory of cinema’s future. It thrills on so many levels. And because Cuarón is a movie visionary of the highest order, you truly can’t beat the view”, said Richard Corliss from Time Magazine.
In ‘Gravity’, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney play two astronauts, Ryan and Matt, who seem doomed to float in space for eternity after a collision with space debris.
Tickets cost 20 euros (film + drink afterwards with welcome snacks and drinks in the VIP tent) and can be purchased here. Goody bag included. Dress code: cocktail.
In collaboration with Stella Artois and Giorgio Armani Perfumes.
'Gravity' is distributed by Warner Bros Belgium and will be screened in Belgian cinemas from 30 October.
