'Hot Summer' cinema in open-air at the Bijloke site
From the 22nd until the 26th of July, Film Fest Ghent organizes a series of open-air film screenings with the main theme of 'Hot Summer' in the lovely Bijloke site in Ghent, kicking off the summer festival BIJLOKE WONDERLAND.
5 film screenings in open-air
The festival will present 5 film screenings in open air in July.
Wim De Witte, program director of Film Fest Ghent: "Like many other cultural events, we had to cancel some of our film screenings during the year. As such, we are now particularly thrilled to provide people with the opportunity to watch a film on the big screen among others. Moreover, this will be a suitable trial run for the coronaproof edition of Film Fest Ghent 2020 in October."
