Thanks to The Congress, Wallimage opens the Directors' Fortnight

  • 18.04.2013

Logically, Folman will be back at the Festival this year: he will open the Directors’ Fortnight. An interesting exhibition that will perhaps bring together on the Croisette a first choice cast: Robin Wright, Harvey Keitel, Paul Giamatti, Dany Huston, . ..

The Congress is not just a “simple” Belgian co-production justified by an interesting financial set-up. From the beginning, Diana Elbaum has supported the project at arm’s length. Entre Chien et Loup is totally involved and allowed Belgian companies to collaborate in the artistic success of the feature film: the studio Walking the Dog worked on the animation while Mikros Images Liège worked on the Special Effects.

And of course, cocorico, this project which had excited us as soon as we read the script was co-financed by Wallimage. In Belgium, Cineart will be in charge of the distribution.
