Film Fest Golden Friend

Support the festival and experience more!

During the 50th Film Fest Gent, we celebrated how FFG has grown into a major international film festival since 1974. The focus on quality films from all continents, by established and young, promising filmmakers has remained intact all these years. At the 51st edition, we continue to work on the future. Preferably not alone, but with a growing group of friends who support us.

As a Golden Friend, you support our mission to give young, promising filmmakers and composers a place at our festival, thus ensuring the diversity of our programme.

Film Fest Golden Friend price: 500 euro
