Film Fest Café & restaurants
Film Fest Café
The festival experience does not start and finish in the cinema. Kick off your festival day from 9 a.m. with a coffee & croissant in the cosy Film Fest Café, the perfect location for a break between screenings, spontaneous meetings and a nice chat after the film screenings. During the festival the Film Fest Café on the festival site is the beating heart of Film Fest Gent.
