A triumph for this film for which, let’s remember it, because it makes us particularly happy, Wallimage is the biggest public supporter.
Our economic fund was created just after the Cannes award for Rosetta with this remark: why can Belgium produce such films when there is no real film industry?
Fifteen years later, Wallimage has become a must-see, and the entire Rosetta team has once again won the Magritte awards… sinceÉmilie Dequenne, sublime in Pas son genre by Lucas Belvaux, was elected best actress of the year.
For good measure, Wallimage/Bruxellimage received three trophies yesterday thanks to Marina, which was voted best Flemish film and awarded for its sets and costumes. Like at Ensors last September.

Minuscule, Valley of the Lost Ants received the Magritte for the best foreign film in co-production, Je te survivrai received the Magritte for the best first film, thanks to the public’s votes, and La Bûche de Noël , which will soon be seen in competition at the César Awards, won the Magritte for the best short film.
Finally, Wallimage may be today a dashing 15 year old, but it remains a real hope as shown by the awards received by Marc Zinga for Stripes of the Zebra and Ambre Grouwels explosive in Baby Balloon.
A very lively teenager as shown by the arrival of the team on the blue carpet with the team of the Aréoport; Éric and Ramzy, but also Serge de Poucques and Sylvain Goldberg the Belgian producers of this next delirium.
What an evening!
