Strangely enough, these are not real novelties for us, but it happens that these films are still not released in France:
I Am Yours
from David Lambert with Jean-Michel Balthazar and Nahuel Perez Biscayart and Post Partum of Delphine Noels with Mélanie Doutey and Jalil Lespert, co-written by… David Lambert will try to seduce a jury presided by Jean-Hugues Anglade in which we will find the now ubiquitous and always so cute Marie Gillain
Other common points of these two films: they have the same producer, Jean-Yves Roubin (Frakas)… and both were co-financed by Wallimage/Bruxellimage
In addition to these feature films and
The Brand New Testament
by Jaco van Dormael, already mentioned, filmgoers from the region will also discover other films co-financed by the mixed fund or by Wallimage.
The New Adventures of Aladdin
by Arthur Benzaquen with Kev Adams and William Lebghil, a comedy co-produced by Artemis, will be presented as a preview during an exceptional screening: the single session is planned for more than 2000 people.
The icing on the cake, the festival will offer a copious retrospective of 15 Belgian works that will sweep the history of the 7th art of our country. Here too, some Wallimage films are naturally programmed: L’enfant by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (2005) with Jérémie Renier and Déborah François, Nue Propriété by Joachim Lafosse (2007) with Isabelle Hupert, Jérémie Rénier and Yannick Rénier or Eldorado by and with Bouli Lanners (2008).
This tribute to Belgian cinema will be completed by two photographic exhibitions : ” Portraits of Belgian artists ” by Dominique Houcmant/Goldo and ” Women in cinema ” by Valérie Nagant (a preview, therefore).
All the screenings of the Belgian films, as well as the two exhibitions will be presented in a new place, Le Nil, university of the image of Angoulême.
Produced by Versus (you don’t change a winning team) and co-financed by Wallimage/Bruxellimage, Les chevaliers blancs will be distributed in Belgium by O’Brother distribution and in France by Le Pacte. The theatrical release is scheduled for January 2016.
