Wallimage was born in 2001 from a political will. At the time, it was the MR minister Serge Kubla who put the Walloon fund on track and appointed Philippe Reynaert as its head.
His PS successor, Jean-Claude Marcourt, did not change anything. But he amplified the action of the fund and contributed to diversify it by reinforcing the interaction between Wallimage and the audiovisual companies and by creating a specific line dedicated to animation.
These two pillars of Wallimage were of course present yesterday, as well as other emblematic figures of the Walloon political landscape: Elio Di Rupo, mayor of Mons and immediate neighbor of Wallimage spoke under the watchful eye of Fadila Laanan.
At the entrance of the room, Rudy Demotte, Minister-President of the Walloon Region and of the French Community, met Vincent Leclercq, responsible for the office of filming and film and television funds of the CRRAV, the big brother of Wallimage located in the North of France.
Wallonia, land of exchanges and meetings. Creative and dynamic land. This is a reality!
