Join us down a cinematic rabbit hole of offbeat, weird, wonderful, poetic, surreal or abstract films. This year, Brussels Independent Film Festival goes underground with a selection of experimental films (narrative films, documentaries, animations, music videos...) by artists from all over the globe. The vaulted rooms of the underground exhibition hall at Cinema GALERIES will serve as the setting for the weeklong continuous screenings of 30 carefully selected works, on 3 different screens. You can visit for free for the duration of the festival, every day between 2PM-9PM.
We'll be featuring different works that adopt alternative approaches to filmmaking. They are sometimes profoundly personal, other times formally radical explorations of image, sound and atmosphere. Making films is truly the process of creating art – vibrant, living works that evoke emotion and resonate with viewers. This essential truth often gets lost in today’s world, which sees cinema as a means of commerce and often overlooks obscure and experimental works of great value but limited box office appeal.
All films are English spoken and/or English subtitled.
