Are you a fan of Flemish cinema?
This will interest you whether you are a fan of Flemish cinema or just interested in discovering new films.
At the beginning of March, the Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF) and Flanders Images launched an online platform called flaminGo.pics. This search engine allows film buffs to find out how to legally watch Flemish film, whether on a streaming platform, at the cinema or at a film festival.
It is a way to meet the demands of many Belgian and foreign fans who want to see or rewatch gems such as Michaël R. Roskam's Bullhead (Rundskop), released in 2011, a thrilling crime film about hormone dealers in the world of livestock feeders. Alabama Monroe (The Broken Circle Breakdown, 2012) by Felix Van Groeningen, tells the story of a former banjo-playing punk who falls in love with Elise, owner of a tattoo parlour. From their love, a little girl is born; she is carried off by cancer, and each parent has to try and overcome this ordeal. In a different category, you may enjoy seeing or re-watching Daens by Stijn Coninx, released in 1992, which recounts the life of Abbot Daens, who fought for universal suffrage and workers' rights at the end of the 19th century. It is a real social fresco.
Expatriates can also find out which cinema or festival to visit to see a recent Flemish film. Such as Dealer, for example, which has just won the 'Ensor' for Best Flemish film.
